Response to Right arm rates

Ray, you were close and maybe correct and yes there was a turret captain and a later BJM could have had a mineman listed in place of one of the other ratres. But according to my 1944 BJM right arm rates and precedence are as follows: Boatswains, Gunner, Turret captain, Torpedoman, Quartermaster, Signalman, and Fire controlman. Precedence meaning priority in rank and preference in privileges. All of this is clearly spelled out and very much in detail in the BJM but I didn’t think it necessary to go to that much depth.
