When ex Ganges boys Chiefs and PO's plus a number of Cmd WO's and SCmd WO's ran the navy.

Some of those WW2 and beyond ex Gandes were commissioned for their seamanship and other skills never having passed the HET exam nor ET2 or ET1 for that matter.
How high up the scale did they reach?

I remember having a drink at Sasebo when serving on Ladybird with
clever ex telegraphist WO who rose to be a Captain.
His name Norman Henry Pond.
Was he the highest ranker?
