History

In a letter to the First Lord of the Admiralty on 11 July, 1913, the Commander-in-Chief, Herbert G. King-Hall, noted of his command, "Though small it gets through quite a lot of exercises at Sea in the most approved Home Fleet manner."[1]

The station title was changed to Africa Station by an order of 21 June, 1919.[2]

In 1939, it was renamed the South Atlantic Station.
