Military Rank Trivia

Some of the sharper viewers and readers may have noticed that certain news providers - TV, online and print - have referred to the British military spokesman Group Captain Al Lockwood as simply "Captain". There is no such rank in the RAF. Group Captain in the RAF is a bit higher than Captain in the Army. (In the US Armed Forces, the ranks for Air Force and Army are almost identical, mainly because the Air Force was originally part of the Army - the Army Air Corps. This is not the case in the UK.) If you would like to find out what all the RAF ranks are, in the proper order, try the RAF Officers Rank Test.
