Rear-Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood (1748-1810)
Collingwood was Nelson's second-in-command at the Battle of Trafalgar and commanded the lee column there, his flagship, 'Royal Sovereign', being first into action. Collingwood was also an old and close friend of Nelson, and had first served with him in the American Revolutionary War. On Nelson's death during the Battle of Trafalgar, Collingwood assumed command of the fleet. He was subsequently appointed Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean and never saw England again after Trafalgar. He was only relieved in 1810 on grounds of his health, died on the way home and was buried at sea.
