HC Deb 29 September 1909 vol 11 c1393W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty why the work of preparing war plans and all questions of strategy and tactics and organisation of the same have been entrusted to the junior flag captain on the admiral's staff of the Home Fleet instead of being given to the captain of the Fleet, who is a commodore on the admiral's staff in the same ship?


The distribution of staff duties is within the discretion of the Commander-in-Chief.
