From the senior flagship all orders & signals would be made, however should signalling become impossible, each group of ships would simply watch and follow the movements of the flagship.

Rear Admiral Lord Charles Beresford and Officers of the Ramillies c.1901.

The Officers and Crew of the Ramillies in 1902

Before Lord Charles Beresford became second in command on the Mediterranean station, he had little opportunity to make a record as a tactician. It had been assumed indeed that the Admiral had not made a study of this branch of the naval organisation. But the manner in which he handled a fleet in the Mediterranean amply disproved the assertions of his critics. Whatever it may have been at an earlier period, his professional reputation was enhanced by his services up the Straits, and he showed that in tactical ability he was worthy to take place beside our foremost admirals. The photograph above gives a good representation of the ship's company to which this popular admiral formerly belonged. It shows the officers and crew of the Ramillies, with Lord Charles Beresford in the centre, and gives a good idea of the harmony which prevailed on board.
