. Each naval squadron would be assigned an admiral as its head, who would command from the centre vessel and direct the activities of the squadron.

In the rear of the naval squadron, a third admiral would command the remaining ships and, as this section of the squadron was considered to be in the least danger, the admiral in command of the rear would typically be the most junior of the squadron admirals
