Old Tom Posted 8 June , 2016 Share Posted 8 June , 2016 I have read with interest (thanks for the link) the account by this Gunner in the thread about the Battle of Jutland. I know next to nothing about the hierarchy of RN NCOs in the Great War and find I am unclear about this chaps rank. May I ask for some guidance. Grant appears to have been the senior non commissioned gunner in the ship and was appointed after the previous post holder had been dismissed. He clearly was qualified and able to advise senior officers and was later granted a commission. His story ends when he is appointed to command a destroyer. That is of course highly commendable, but I am inclined to wonder on the basis that as a gunner he would not have the experience for that post. Any thoughts much appreciated.
