Francis Drake Citation

Awarded for outstanding ship-to-ship maneuvers and combat skills against the odds. Named after Sir. Francis Drake, English explorer, navigator, turned pirate. This award is in recognition for the 1855 defeat of the Spanish Armada. Drake was vice admiral in command of the English fleet (under Lord Howard of Effingham) when it overcame the Spanish Armada that was attempting to invade England in 1588. As the English fleet pursued the Armada up the English Channel in closing darkness, Drake broke off and captured the Spanish galleon Rosario, along with Admiral Pedro de Vald├ęs and all his crew.
