First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff.

Sounds like a Navy Chief to me.

Has anyone got anything to say about the Admiral's take on future capability, ships to task etc or shall I cleanse Current Affairs of this dreary 'not a Chief' bullshit?

I thought it was interesting that a Forces publication chose to use the headline 'Ex Navy Chief', not 'Ex Navy Chief of Staff'.
So sorry you find it dreary.

Barge it, gives free-gangway to a few bored but interested souls.

Rather surprised that you had not done so already... (possibly getting soft now that you are outside and no longer need the points :WINK: ?)

RFA Chief Engineer Officers are colloquially called 'Chief' despite having the rank of Captain.
I always found that weird when I was Unicorn support group and we were on Diligence. The first time I came across it I was chatting to the Chief Engineer in the workshop when a motorman came in and called out "excuse me Chief" and we both turned round and said "yes"
