Re: They’re at it again, first the National Trust, now going after Palaces.
Lucy Worsley is an awful presenter, I watched a really good documentary on the battle of Trafalgar a few years back and British navy was a real mish mash of nationalities, as was the Spanish and French fleet, both sides included a considerable number of non white sailors. The British fleet was estimated to have 20% non white sailors. Historians on the programme surmised this was not made known as it would appear that the navy needed non British sailors it would appear weak in the eyes of the people, the thing is that most navies were like that then in make up of the cohorts, it wasn't unique.
