    He is wearing full-dress uniform. Two & half stripes indicates Lt Cdr (post 1914) or Lt over 8 yrs seniority) pre-1914. Curls in stripes are & no colour between them are for Executive Branch (Seamen – eligible for ship command). The oddity is that the curl seems to be the wrong way round (‘going astern’ as we used to say). Will pass to Alastair Wilson who tends to be more expert on these matters.
