Jervis had the reputation as a disciplinarian and put in place a new system that would ensure that the men in the Mediterranean fleet did not mutiny. To begin with the admiral wrote a new set of standing orders.
For example, Jervis divided the seamen and marines and berthed the two separately putting the marines between the officers aft and the men forward. Jervis discouraged conversation in Irish  though he did not ban it.
He ordered the marine detachments to be paraded every morning and, if there was a band available, for "God save the King" to be played. The marine detachment was then to remain armed at all times. Marines and soldiers were also excused from duties in regard to the general running of the ship.

To show therefore that your Commander-in-chief will never pass over merit wheresoever he may find it. There is your money Sir!

/ and the king Loveshine - Mötley Crüe - Mötley Crüe Jervis to decline. When the men aboard the Marlborough refused to execute a man for mutinous behaviour and their captain did nothing, the Earl threatened the captain with replacement and had boats from the rest of the fleet armed with carronades surround the Marlborough ; he then threatened to sink the ship if his orders were not carried out.
The man was duly executed. St Vincent turned to an officer beside him watching the mutineer hanging from the yard arm and said "Discipline is preserved, Sir!
