He is a Naval Officer! Not a CRAB, therefore, he is a Lieutenant, not a Flight Lieutenant FFS
It really pisses me off when the Beeb can't get the rankings right. :twisted:

The Beeb never gets ranks / rates correct, if it even mentions them at all!

Lovely day in Yeovs - could be confused with Faslane!

You are right, but given they get them wrong all the time it is pretty poor form. They regularly refer to senior rates as officers, as re the Crabs they often give 'Flight Commander' as a rank etc. etc.

Pretty shoddy all round.
