Below is a list of First and Principal Naval Aides-de-Camp, an office established by William IV of the United Kingdom in 1830:

First and Principal Naval Aides-de-Camp[edit]

Sir George Zambellas was appointed First and Principal Naval Aide-de-Camp at the same time as his appointment as First Sea Lord. Aiguilettes on the right shoulder are the insignia of an Aide-de-Camp.

Since 1972, the office has been united with that of First Sea Lord.

Flag Aide-de-Camp[edit]

Flag Aide-de-Camp is the designation given to the next most senior Naval Aide-de-Camp after the First and Principal Naval ADC (qv). Between 1969 and 2012, the Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command invariably held this appointment; (and from 1994-2012 the post of Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command, and with it the office of Flag Aide-de-Camp, was united with the job of Second Sea Lord).[3] Since October 2012, however, the Commander-in-Chief post has to all intents and purposes ceased to exist,[4] and the current Second Sea Lord has not been appointed Flag Aide-de-Camp.
