John Arbuthnot Fisher, 1st Baron Fisher (1841-1920), Admiral

Sitter in 16 portraits
Admiral of the Fleet; an efficient administrator whose reforming influence was felt throughout the navy. Having retired as First Sea Lord in 1910, Fisher returned to office on the outbreak of war in 1914. He strongly disapproved of the Gallipoli campaign and resigned over the increasing demand for ships in the Dardanelles.
