    Default Fast promotion RN style?

    How many ex RN personel noticed HM and her family attending Prince Phillips memorial service this week, noticed that Princess Anne’s second husband is now an Admiral . Seem to recollect he was a naval lieutenant when she married him. Fast promotion in any walk of life , or a position fitting to his Royal status in the family ? There are always certain things that stick in the memory banks no matter how bad ones memory gets. In trying to remember a recent surname beginning with the letter F ,brought to mind a chief engineer I sailed with called Fuchter , he started life as a stoker RN, served in submarines during the last war, got a commission , came out of the RN at 48 years of age and his claim to fame was he was the oldest lieutenant in the RN.However this gave him a class 1 cert. of service as chief engineer , and his next claim to fame was he was the best customer in the Japanese bath houses. A good shipmate and the life of any party. JS

    Anne’s husband, now part of royal family is given promotion alongside the people who first qualified alongside him. Perhaps a recognition that he gave up active service to join the royal family.
