This concluding chapter summarizes the main themes covered in the preceding discussions. The main function of all naval administration is to provide the support services that enable warships to carry out their assigned operational tasks. In the Caribbean, this involved protecting British trade, attacking enemy commerce, and carrying out operations against Spanish, and later, French colonies. The question now arises as to why it was difficult to keep the islands supplied. Some answers to the question are proposed. The ambiguous attitude to the navy of the islanders is also considered.
