Flag allowances
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 19th February, 1910.

Present, The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas there was this day read at the Board a Memorial from the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, dated the 5th February, 1910, in the words following, viz.:

Whereas by section three of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, etc.

And whereas, by the regulations for the government of Your Majesty's Naval Service, Flag allowances are only payable during such periods as the Flag or Broad Pendant of an Admiral or Commodore shall be flying within the limits of his station:

And whereas we consider it desirable that this restriction should in certain cases be removed :

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to authorize us at our discretion to continue payment of Flag allowances notwithstanding the fact that the Flag Ship concerned may have passed beyond the limits of the station :

We would further recommend that this provision should take effect as from 1st April, 1909.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.

His Majesty, having taken the said Memorial into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to approve of what is therein proposed. And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.
Almeric FitzRoy.

Commanders-in-Chief's Yachts in Home Ports to be Replaced by Allowances.
And whereas it has been decided to discontinue the arrangement under which the Commanders-in-Chief of Your Majesty's ships and vessels at the Nore, Portsmouth and Devonport are each provided with a yacht for their own use:

And whereas we are of the opinion that an additional allowance should be made to these Officers in consideration of the withdrawal of this privilege and of the expenses incidental to their appointment:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to sanction the payment to each of the Commanders-in-Chief aforesaid of a special allowance of five hundred pounds a year as from the date on which a yacht ceases to be maintained for his personal use.


1912 07 05
Establishment of Admiral of Patrols - a Flag Officer to command certain Destroyer and Submarine Flotillas
And whereas we have decided to appoint a Flag Officer to command certain Destroyer and Submarine Flotillas in home waters with the title of ĎAdmiral of Patrols':

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to sanction consolidated pay of £1,500 per annum being granted to this officer:

We further beg leave to recommend that the Captain appointed on the staff of the Admiral of Patrols should receive consolidated pay of £800 per annum.
