Navy urged to 'congratulate' personnel with revived WO2 rank

The rank is set to be reintroduced across the service this year, after being phased out in 2014.

The Commander of the Maritime Reserves has urged those who see Royal Navy Reservists wearing the new Warrant Officer 2 epaulettes to "congratulate" them.

The rank was phased out in 2014, and is set to be re-introduced across the service this year as part of Royal Navy Transformation.

And Commodore Mel Robinson said in a post on Twitter: "Now you've seen them, congratulate those that wear them. An honour indeed."
