EIIR Pin badge on Captain's rings

#1
Apologies if this isn't the most appropriate forum for my question:

I saw recently a Captain in No3's and he had a small silver EIIR pin badge on his rank slides and wondered what this signified?

If what your referring is Queen Elizabeth 2 it refers to the Queens equerry i believe. The Colonel of my unit was one and displayed the same below his rank!!

Siverfox is correct ADC to the Queen. There is a general piece on wikipedia about it.
I just remember the Colonel of my unit displaying E.R on his epaulettes and was told he wipes the queens bum or something!!

:p :p

The RN doesn't have ADCs, it has Equerries, both Flag and 'Normal'. The former are the one's who wear EIIR on their Rank, the latter just work for Flag Officers.
