I just finished reading about Arleigh Burke in Destroyer Squadron 23. He was a captain over 6 destroyers but sailed on one. I realize naval actions in the Pacific, particularly in 1942 were typically very short affairs, often less than a day, but was curious as to how he would be accommodated. They still had the vessel's "Captain" to berth so did all destroyers have such accommodation or was one modified. I have only been through one WW 2 destroyer, a British one at Brighton (Now moved) but it had little room for any extra people or persons. I imagine it was pretty spartan on a DE. I have run across more than a few situations where an Admiral, Oldendorf, for example, had a flagship that was a cruiser when he had 4 battleships under his command off Peleliu., choose it instead of a battleship. In that case, he had a large staff and how were they accommodated. Perhaps to let the battleships do the heavy firing and the cruiser hang back? Did not Roosevelt and Churchill meet in heavy cruisers? How did a wardroom fit then in? I guess my basic questions are one, how did a destroyer fit the squadron commander in hand two, how were flagships chosen? It seems like MacArthur would have demanded something bigger than a cruiser!! Where would he, his head, and his staff meet? I spend my days trying to fit people into spaces and this is provoking to me.
