The following promotions have been confirmed by the Admiralty:
Amity Harlow, to the rank of Midshipman. Ms. Harlow will henceforth be acting in my name in my absence, and members of the military should properly render her a salute.
Jules Alabaster, to the rank of Boatswain. Boatswain Alabaster will be serving as my attache to the local militia.
Tashif Alize, to the rank of Boatswain. Boatswain Alize will be serving as my Purser and will henceforth be in charge of the disposition and spending of the military budget. Town council members planning to utilize that fund, established for the building of the town, should coordinate with Boatswain Alize.
I regret to inform the citizens of Port Katherine that Petty Officer Jackrum has been reassigned to another posting in the Queendom.
Congratulations to all on their new ranks and positions.
Captain Sir Robert Stanton
Commanding Officer, Port Katherine
((Military salutes should be held until returned by the officer, which they should do as soon as they notice you saluting them. You should do so for all officers of higher rank than you (Midshipman and above), but you don’t have to do so every time you see them - if you’re going toward them, or if it’s been a while since you’ve seen them, etc - you get an idea after a while of how often to salute))
((civilians should be polite and respectful by using military titles in addressing military members - Boatswain Alize vs Tashif, for example))
