Response to Re: Fazant commmanding officer - F.J. Keizer


Generally the officers which were militarized in the Navy were either LT jg or ARO Sgt. The reason is that the 3rd Lt rank did not yet excist in 1942. The graduate midshipmen had the 1 stripe were still revered to as "jonker".

The usual practice for merchant marine and gouvernements navy types was the to start at the lowest officer rank possible and work up by seniority. The highest rank they could attain was Overste or Lt Col. Im not sure any one of the seagoing GM had that rank. Their rank wasn't transferable either. They would not be able to serve in that rank in the regular navy.
