#TuesdayTales from the Archives: Identifying the rank of the officers of the fleet

When on duty, the officers of our fleet wear a uniform. The epaulets on their uniform differentiate their ranks. So if you are looking through photos you took of our officers and crew while sailing with us, this is how you know if you took a selfie with a Captain or a First Mate:

  • A Captain’s epaulet has 4 stripes
  • A First Mate wears an epaulet with 3 stripes

Our Engineers, can be identified in your photos because they are most likely standing in the engine room or near the controls of the steam engine on RMS Segwun. However, if you caught them on deck, their uniforms have a specific insignia unique to our fleet.
