I am reading some of Mahan's writings on naval strategy. He is described everywhere as a 'bear admiral'. What on earth is one of those?

A misspelling of Rear Admiral? Or a misreading by optical scanning software that confuses Rear with Bear?

I could do the joke about friendly bears on military radio nets.....................

Concur With Mr D. Optical reading software does tend to read some words as others. Recently there was a flaw found with the software changing some words to dirty words!
