PASCO, John (1774-1853). Signal officer on the Victory at Trafalgar.
Signature and subscription from the foot of a letter, dated in another hand 23 February 1841. It was Pasco who raised the famous signal 'England expects that every man will do his duty', having asked Nelson to change the word 'confides' (not in the signal book) to 'expects' to simplify the procedure.
