I was waiting for someone to do this after seeing the US one! You've put major and captain in the same box for army though, they should be separate ranks.

Also missing an n on Normal shipman
Oct 20th, 2009 at 09:47 GMT
Your quiz doesn't match your source. It's "Able seaman" not "Able shipman", and so on for the other "shipman" ranks. You have misspelled "lietenant" in the Royal Marines - it should be "lieutenant". Also would be nice if abbreviations were allowed (lt colonel, lt commander).
Oct 28th, 2009 at 18:37 GMT
can you include things like "warrant officer class 1" please. Also the RM have lieutenant colonel not lt major and the RAF need warRant officer. Other than that really good :-)
Oct 29th, 2009 at 15:40 GMT
you misspellt flight sergeant, and could you accept first sea lord for admiral of the fleet? But a really fun quiz overall.

spelt warRant officer wrong

The quiz is ok in general but in the Royal Navy they don't have a fleet chief petty officer and the ratings are not called "Seamen". They are Leading Rates, Able Rates and Ordinary Rates. Any doubt on that should be cleared up with a look at this page: http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/training-and-people/rn-life/uniforms-and-badges-of-rank/tri-service-badges/tri-service-badges-ratings/

You spelt Junior technician wrong, good to see a quiz like it though. And the RM do have Lieutenant Colonels
Aug 14th, 2010 at 17:53 GMT
Couple of things: 1.) You spelt Marshall wrong, 2.) RN don't have Fleet Chief Petty Officers any more they have Warrant Officers 1st and 2nd Class 3.) It's Ordinary Seaman not Normal Seaman 4.) Royal Marines have Lieutenant-Colonels not Lieutenant Majors

SPELT ***TECHNICIAN*** WRONG FOR __===THE=ROYAL=AIR=FORCE===_RANK JUNOIR """""TECHINCIAN??? :@""""" CHANGE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatever happened to Company Sergeant Major, Regimental Sergeant Major, etc.?
Oct 29th, 2011 at 22:01 GMT
CSM, RSM, BSM, ASM, CQMS etc. are appointments, not ranks. However, the ones which ARE ranks are things like Colour Sergeant, Craftsman, Rifleman, Fusilier etc. and should be included. Disappointing.
Dec 25th, 2011 at 23:58 GMT
The Royal Marines do not have a General or Lieutenant-General. Also, Lieutenant-Major should be Lieutenant-Colonel. Other than that, good quiz!
Nov 12th, 2012 at 22:56 GMT
Guardsman Sapper etc

We also have lance corporals in the RAF now.

No such thing as a Lieutenant-Major in the Marines
