      Can any Member advise me whether Mates were re-styled Sub-Lieutenants on 16 April or 16 May 1861?

        The Navy List corrected to the 20th December 1861 includes a list issued by the Admiralty on 7 May 1861 of the relative ranks of the navy and army as directed by an Order in Council dated 16 April 1861.
        This list includes the rank of Sub-Lieutenant with a note that the title Sub-Lieutenant is substituted for that of Mate. I don’t know whether there may have been any earlier order.
