Time Required to Qualify a Captain for his Active Flag.


By Her Majesty's Order in Council of 11 Mar 1853, it is enjoined that the only exceptions to the provisions contained in Art. 2, Chap. 2, Page 8, of the Queen's Regulations, shall in future consist as follows, viz. :-
  1. That a Captain shall be allowed to reckon as time served at sea, the period during which he may have been employed afloat on surveying or other duties ; provided that during such period he shall actually have had the charge in command of some surveying ship or other seagoing vessel, and provided also that he shall have been borne for such service as additional Captain on the books of one of Her Majesty's rated ships.
  2. That a Captain Superintendent of one of Her Majesty's Dockyards shall be allowed to reckon as time served at sea the period during which he may have been so employed ; but time served by an Officer as one of Her Majesty's Victualling Yards or Hospitals will for the future be no longer allowed to reckon as equivalent to time served at sea.
