Hello, everyone. I'm new to the forum. I am a Royal Navy widow living in the USA. I have been watching on You Tube a 4-part series on BRNC. It was excellent. I have two questions, though. 1. Are Officer Cadet & Midshipman the same rank? 2. Why do some pass out with the rank of Sublieutenant & some with the rank of Midshipman? Thanks. I couldn't seem to find the answers anywhere else on the Internet.
