HMS Demon Ship’s Order 1605-02
To: All officers and enlisted personnel of HMS Demon (CLAC-62)
From: Captain (SG) Sir Sherman Day, Commanding Officer
RE: Promotion
A Midshipman is neither truly an Officer, or an Enlisted but is rather in a state of metamorphosis, in a Cocoon so to speak. Upon concluding the Midshipman Program, they can choose to stay enlisted, or become Junior Officers with the rank of Ensign. Furthermore, in the Database, they are listed with E Grade for their rank, while retaining their Queen’s Warrant as a Midshipman with the status of an Officer.
Therefore I hereby acknowledge Midshipman Kennedy’s, RMN-2624-16, SIA Exam Status with the permanent promotion status, with a Waiver approved by the FLA, from E-1 to E-3.
This acknowledges that upon concluding the Midshipman Program the Rank of Spacer 1/c shall be permanently incurred, or any higher rank made by completing Exams and Time in Grade with future ‘permanent promotion status’ announcements.
Midshipman Kennedy has furthermore completed Master-at-Arms A, C, and D. He is hereby appointed as Division Head of Master-at-Arms.
Midshipman MAA Kennedy is hereby entitled to all the privileges, rights, duties, and responsibilities to be accorded an Officer in The Royal Manticoran Navy.
In Service to the Queen,
Captain (SG) Sir Sherman Day, SC, KCE, CGM
