Morning All ! Been trawling through memberships of Naval organistaions, and come across this one: Command Warrant Officer When was this instituted, and is it something similar to the US Forces most senior EM rank ? What is his/her job in the hierarchy of the Navy ? Is it purely ceremonial or something else ? As WOs were only just being brought back when I left the mob, this is a new one on me, perhaps someone could enlighten me - maybe a current CWO perhaps ?
