Lord Thomas Cochrane honoured

On Chilean Navy Day, the Chilean Naval Mission in London lay a wreath on the tomb in Westminster Abbey of Lord Thomas Cochrane, the British Naval officer known as “the wolf of the sea” who served in the Chilean rebel navy against the Spanish in their War of Independence. The occasion commemorates the Naval Battle of Iquique in the War of the Pacific.
