The enlisted rate insignia of World War I were governed by the Uniform Regulations of and subsequent revisions. The enlisted structure of the Navy, at that time, was still evolving from its nineteenth century origins. Petty officers and non-rated men were grouped into classes, but there were not yet standardized pay grades as we think of them today. Not every rating had rates in every class; a few titles had only one petty officer rate. The overall shape of the rating badge was not standardized at the time, and sailors often cut the backing material into decorative shapes. The rating badges in the following tables are illustrated in a rectangular format, similar to the way they were presented in the uniform regulations. In March the first rating badges for petty officers assigned to naval aviation were authorized. To accommodate the wider winged specialty marks, the eagle was spaced a quarter of an inch higher than on standard rating badges. This was most visible in the arch for chief petty officers. Petty Officers Petty officers wore their rating badges on one sleeve of their uniforms:

In other localities, forward-facing systems prevail, especially in crowded areas such as in Venice, Italy and in Asian and Indonesian rivers and harbors. This is not strictly an “either-or”, because in different situations it’s useful to be able to row a boat facing either way. The current emphasis on the health aspects of rowing has resulted in some new mechanical systems being developed, some such as the Rantilla rowing method very different from the traditional rowing systems of the past.

Why exactly do the British say lieutenant as ‘leftenant’? Mark Dallas, London UK The word was originally two Latin terms, “locum” meaning in place of, and “teneris” meaning holding, together the phrase applied to anyone “holding in place of” someone else. Over time the word “locum” evolved into the French word “lieu”, which is pronounced in French as it is spelled. It is possible that when the English heard the French pronounce the compound word lieutenant, they perceived a slurring which they heard as a “v” or “f” sound between the first and second syllables.
Most English speaking nations, with the exception of the United States, still pronounce the word as though there is an “f” in it. Albert, Derby UK Because it’s the correct pronunciation. Nomad, London England I think it’s pronounced with an “f” sound spelled v in Russian as well. The earliest examples in OED are all from Scotland, and it seems even then that the “Lefftenant” pronunciation was being used Barbour’s “Bruce” has “luftenand” in the mid 14th century.
Moreoever an Old French rending of lieu was “luef”. The British pronunciation was still used in the USA in but had almost died out except in military circles by One could explain this the influence of non-British immigrants applying standard French pronunciation to a word with apparently obvious French origins. I would image in the US we say loo-tenant because of how it’s spelled..
According to websters, Lieu is pronouced, loo. I assume they do not want to give the impression that a leftenant is a resident of a toilet as in loo-tenant.
The Red Top retreat in Connecticut is a very special place for Harvard rowers, especially this year. Yale had knocked off Harvard three weeks ago in winning the Eastern Sprints, but it was the Crimson advancing to the grand final, not the Bulldogs, two weeks later at the IRA National Championship. But on a perfect day for racing, and the water in front of the two boats as quiet and as calm as a sleeping baby, Yale had the lead at the half-mile flag and never trailed. Too much, it turned out.

Return to Sea Flags home page The flying of a flag at the masthead to designate the vessel of a fleet commander is more than twice as old as the United States Navy, dating well back into the Middle Ages. The first known orders covering this subject in the English navy were issued in Navy was that of captain, with those captains serving as squadron commanders bearing the courtesy title and flying the broad pennant of a commodore.
Commodore’s broad pennants were blue, red, or white, depending on seniority, with stars equal to the number of states in the Union. The senior commodore present flew a blue pennant with white stars, the next senior red with white, and any others white with blue stars. In , Congress created the title of “flag officer” and in finally authorized the first American use of the title “admiral.
