All pilots licensed by the Commissioners, cruise to and from stations and places within the limits of the pilotage jurisdiction of the Board, that is, within that portion of the Bristol Channel which lies eastward of Lundy Island, including the River Severn to the City of Gloucester and the River Wye to Chepstow Bridge. The duties of such pilots are divided into divisions and sections, or both, so that each pilot has his regular and equal turn for service, and takes his turn in attending at the different stations within the above limits, and each division and section cruises to and from the following stations:-1.

The Commissioners license boats for the pilotage service for the Port of Gloucester, and then ard from time to time allot the boats so licensed to the stations above-mentioned, and
require the pilots to serve on such boats and on such stations in the division and sections above. The pilot boats are cutter rigged with black painted hull and white bulwarks on the outside, with the number in black on each bow, and the words "Gloucester Pilots" in white on the stern, and the letters "G. S." marked in black paint of not less than 3ft in length on the mainsail, and carry the usual signals ordered by the Board of Trade, day and night, with a private signal at night of three flashes in succession at short intervals, which shall never exceed 15 minutes.
