Promotion Letters

Does anybody know any information on the contents of the letter that is normally written to your CO requesting the permission to stripe up?


Thanks in advance,

Navy2010.

When you say 'stripe up' are you referring to being awarded a good conduct badge i.e. a stripe?

Apologies for the confusion, I meant striping up as in promotion of rank, sub-lieutenant to lieutenant.

I Thought the same as Polto, I don't recall writing a snivelling creepy letter to get rated. :roll: :D :wink:

I would have done though it was £5.00 a week more then.
 
Stripes/Rings/Badges

For those looking in who might be a tad confused:

Rating's Good Conduct Badges - 'Badges' or 'Stripes' to the Lower Deck, but 'GCBs' or 'Badges' to the Wardroom.

Officer's Gold Lace - 'Rings' to the Lower Deck, but 'Stripes' to the Wardroom.


Unless it has all changed recently...... 8O

If you are wondering why I know this format so well it is because normally I have to write it as I have the honour to submit my reasons in writing.....
 
The dreaded "Reasons in writing...."



Always reminded me of the tale of Brer Fox and Brer Rabbit on the subject.

One of 'em "could read 'reading', but could not read 'writing' ".

Apparently with the other it was vice versa.
