Its outcome ensured that the French would never invade Britain and confirmed Britain's naval supremacy - which lasted for another century. Nelson's winning plan, in a change from usual naval tactics, was to split into two columns to break through the enemy line and overwhelm the centre and rear sections of the enemy's fleet. At dawn on 21 October Nelson's HMS Victory hoisted the famous signal'England Expects That Every Man Will Do His Duty'.
