CrowdFunder Campaign a success! The medicine cabinet that belonged to Sir William Beatty who tended Nelson as he died has been secured for a museum

28th January 2021
We are delighted to announce that the medicine cabinet that belonged to Sir William Beatty who tended Nelson as he died has been secured for a museum after a crowdfunding effort. Surgeon Lieutenant Commander Jo Laird of the Royal Navy Medical Service launched the campaign after spotting the piece of nautical history on the antique selling portal 2Covet.

I really wanted this to go to a museum and Haslar is the perfect place for it. It is a unique item with Beatty’s name on it and it was most likely at Trafalgar where Nelson defeated the combined French and Spanish fleets in 1805. The number of those who donated shows how important our naval history is to people.
