I would have thought last place would be Rear Admiral!
It is a lifelong ambition... yes...
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
So this is life... I bring two new fellows to SOL and all my SOL friends have to tell them about me is my Scow title...

:)
In future when you address me you need to stand at attention... neatly and a salute will be required as when addressing any officer of a fleet... ;-)

What-what-what??? A flee(t)ing 'ossifer' with an angry bar-maid chasing him..? With what is it that you wish to be saluted? An upraised finger...?

Or perhaps worse?....two upraised fingers?

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hehe! I guess a thumb would be mostly appreciated ! :-)
On WW's request, after checking my references, "Commander" has been added between Lieutenant and Captain.

For some reason, this rating had been swept under the carpet...

Corrected ! :-)
Not wishing to complicate matters needlessly, I take pen in hand to communicate with Your Lordship the apparent lack of a most important rank in the Navel (the spelling is deliberate) Hierarchy, one that forms the boundary between the "Un-promotable" and the "future leaders of our maritime endeavors", namely that of "LIEUTENANT-COMMANDER". It is a rank that provides for the smooth transition from lowly, and unwashed, Lieutenant to the exalted rank of Commander-"Of whom great things are expected".
I beg to remain, Sir, your most obedient servant,
Landsman--late Sub-Lieutenant, of Her Majesty's Royal Canadian Navy (Reserve)--Rod.

Rod, as I checked my reference yesterday and as I wished to stick (more or less) to the noapoleonic wars ratings, i can tell you for sure that there was no Lieutnant-Commander at that time.

But, as we already added Rear Admiral (after Scots) because the idea was good. And because I added Vice admiral because one must be vicious to reach that rate.... why not add Lieutnant-Commander because you ask ? Your reasons for asking this rating being very... reasonable...

Lieutnant-Commander added !
Rules 6 and 7 added too. :-)
