Midshipman

A non-commissioned officer below the rank of Lieutenant. They are usually regarded as being 'in training' to some degree. These officers have also been known as 'Snotty'.

The Midshipman is 'the lowest form of animal life in the Royal Navy' where he has authority over and responsibility for more junior ranks, yet, at the same time, relying on their experience and learning his trade from them.
