Trafalgar Event in Portsmouth

Taste of Victory

To show their support for the campaign to have Trafalgar Day (October 21st) recognised as an autumn bank holiday, restaurants, pubs, hotels, delis and cafes in Portsmouth are launching the “Victory” – a salt beef and pickle sandwich on a choice of breads.

For every “Victory” salt beef sandwich sold over the weekend of Trafalgar Day, £1 will be donated to the National Museum of the Royal Navy, which works to ensure HMS Victory, the world’s oldest commissioned warship and Nelson’s flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar, is preserved for future generations.

Salt beef is a traditional food in Portsmouth given that it was served on Royal Navy and merchant ships sailing from the city towards foreign shores from the time of the Mary Rose up to World War II.
