I don't need a lecture from a cake-eating civilian on military ranks, I served and my dad was career.Karol never claimed to be a naval Captain.
He stated that he attained Captain's rank in the Canadian Forces.
A Captain in the Canadian Forces, like in the U.S. Army, is, depending on whether they recognize 1st and 2nd Lieutenants or not, the first/second promotion a commissioned Lieutenant would receive.
He is a proven graduate of the Canadian Royal Military Academy. As I said above, he was awarded Lieutenant's rank right out of the gate. In a more than decade-long military career, being promoted to Captain - not the equivalent of naval Captain's rank, which for his branch of the service would have been a Colonel, which he also never claimed to earn - is not only entirely possible, but entirely probable.
Are you really ignorant of all of this or are you just obfuscating?
Karol has constantly saud Canadian Navy.
FYI, anyone who is still a captain after 20 years in the army or air force (excluding mustangs) is a total fuckup.
