Hi all,

A quick question to you extremely knowledgable folks. I am painting up the fleets involved in the Algeciras campaign and was wondering on the pennants that the RN would be flying under Rear Admiral Saumarez since he was "of the blue".

Would they have all supposed to have been flying the blue ensign and a blue pennant? Would the flagship have flown the command flag on the mizzen mast and a pennant on the main?

Thanks in advance!
