New Royal Navy ranks

Unread postby Herrwiggly » Thu Dec 12, 2002 9:35 am

Hi Skeetor, I've just looked at the information on the new Admiral's shoulderboards. It'sjust clicked with something I remember seeing a month ago. Whilst watching the Memorial Service in London last month on t.v., as members of the Royal family came out to take their place, Princess Anne (the Princes Royal) was wearing the uniform of a naval officer. The commentator sais she was wearing the uniform of a Rear Admiral, but when the cameras zoomed in for a close up it could be plainly seen she had two pips on her shoulderboards instead the normal one for Rear Admiral. With information you've provided this morning things have now been clarified. We ( the U.K.) are obviously bringing our senior ranks in line with the rest of N.A.T.O. i.e. four stars for an Admiral etc. Cheers. :D :D
