He examines the origins and development of the sea-officer from earliest times, producing the first comprehensive book on the subject. Divided into four parts, the first is entitled : The Antecedents of the Naval Officer and traces his ancestors, examines the link between seamanship and fighting, and describes the birth of the naval officer. Part Two : The Profession in the Making looks at the supply of officers, their entry and naval training and their service and after-care on retirement. Part Three : Some "Old Officers" gives account of the Lord High Admiral and his deputies, and officers of the old Navy Board. Finally in Part Four : The New Officers, the author examines the Flag-Officers, Ship-Officers holding a commission, "Warrant" Officers, "Civilian" Officers, and the Engineer, bringing the history down to 1939.
