Lord Commander of the Expedition Fleet

During the Great Crusade, a Lord Commander of the Expedition Fleet was a position in the Imperial Army, the highest of its kind. A Lord Commander was in charge of an entire Expedition Fleet, unless a Primarch was attached to it; in which case the Primarch took precedence and the Lord Commander was chiefly in charge of the soldiers of the Imperial Army.[3][5]
