14. The fleet being in line, heading N., to form it into column of vessels from the right, on any course from N. to W.

The commander-in-chief signals:

From the right of fleet, form column of vesselsfleet N.E.-right vessel N.N.W.

Flag-ship of van division: Division N.E.right vessel N.N.W.

Flag-ships of centre and rear divisions signal: Division N.E.

The vessel on the right of the fleet steers N.N.W.; the other vessels N.E., two coming N.N.W., when in the wake of one, three in the wake of two, and so on to the last vessel.

The commander-in-chief signals:

From the right of fleet, form column of vessels— fleet E.-—right vessel N.N.W.

Flag-ship of van division: Division E.-right vessel N.N. W.

Flag-ships of centre and rear divisions signal: Division E.

The vessel on the right of the fleet steers N.N.W.; the other vessels E., and come into column as before.

It is evident that the fleet can be formed into column of vessels from the left, on any course from N. to E., according to the same principles.

The following tables show the rate of speed of

the vessels calculated for each half-point of obliquity from the course signalled by the commander-in-chief, for the leading or guide vessel
