List of Supply Officers in the Royal Navy who have reached flag rank

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Royal Naval Paymasters, Supply Officers and Logistics Officers who have reached flag rank, listed in order of seniority as a Rear-Admiral. It was customary for some officers to be promoted upon retirement, so some pre-war paymaster admirals may not have served in the rank on the active list.

Full names are given, where known, and honours and awards are listed in full, but without dates. Dates of birth are not given for the deceased. Appointments held as an admiral are given and a summary, where known, of appointments held since retirement from the Royal Navy.

At any one time, one admiral is appointed as head of the branch, either as Paymaster Director-General from 1918 to 1944, Director-General Supply and Secretariat Branch from 1944 to 1959, Chief Naval Supply and Secretariat Officer (CNSSO) from 1959 to 2004 and, now, Chief Naval Logistics Officer (CNLO). For the last fifty years, this appointment has been an additional job. However, there was no admiral in the logistics branch from 2008–2010 and the post of CNLO was held by the senior Commodore in the branch.

Research continues but the list is now broadly complete in respect of admirals in the past fifty years. A short history of the Supply Officer complements this list.
