Every year, I simply must celebrate June 1st. Why?
Because it's the anniversary of June 1, 1794, when the British knocked around a French fleet in the first major naval engagement of the French Revolutionary Wars.
Hey, there's always room to celebrate a victory over the French. Especially one with such a resounding name.
BTW, I recall reading somewhere that, for its size, the battle remains the farthest fought from sight of land, some 400 miles off the west coast of Ireland. Impressive, when you contemplate all the years of technological advancement since the age of sail.
