The Royal Navy's Annual Manoeuvres of 1901 were described in documents issued publically from the Admiralty on 10 July.[1]

The action would occur between the 56th and 47th parallels. Fleet B would would cruise the North Sea and would coal at any of the "fortified" (in this scenario) ports of Plymouth, Portland or Portsmouth, at which ports it also maintained forces of cruisers and torpedo craft. Fleet X would cruise off the North Coast of Ireland, and be able to coal at the "fortified" port of Queenstown and the Scilly Islands and maintain cruisers and torpedo craft at the Scillys and the Channel Islands. Britain would belong to Fleet B, and Ireland and the two sets of Islands to X. The fortified ports were to be considered unassailable by any force.
