Exactly, for the Battle of the Nile.  Nelson had two augmentations:
"for second augmentation (posthumous), on a fess wavy overall azure
the word TRAFALGAR Or".  Hence, along the same lines, "ATYC" on the
bend.  To be perfectly symmetric, you should have an even larger and
more important event at which you triumph but are slain by cannon-
fire, and we put that event's name on the bend ... but please don't be
perfectly symmetric.
