Pickle Night (October 21st - 5th November)


PICKLE NIGHT


For those who are not aware of what a “Pickle” night is, it is a celebration of the news of Nelsons success at Trafalgar, which was bought home by Captain John Lapenotiere aboard HMS Pickle, a small fast topsail schooner which was at the battle of Trafalgar as a dispatch carrier for Nelson during the battle. Unlike Trafalgar night dinner this event is held nearer the 5th of November as opposed to the 21st October, as this is when the news finally arrived home, and is celebrated by Senior Rates, as opposed to Officers of the wardroom.
