    Dear Trevor,
    
    please, can you explain the passage repeated below in more detail? I am sorry, 
    but don't understand your interesting statements and I wish to understand 
    them. Thank you.

    >Midshipmen, incidentally, were not one rung up from seamen but (in some
    ways) one rung down from Lieutenants. In theory, they stood lower in the
    on-board hierarchy but simultaneously they were seen as Sea
    Officers-in-training and treated accordingly. So were those
    ex-Midshipmen who had passed a Lieutenants and were serving as Master's
    Mates while awaiting an appointment to commissioned rank, while those
    seamen who had risen to Master's Mates on their way to a Master's
    warrant were not.
