Traditionally, a Junior Officer acting in a higher rank, may only give orders to those of his acting rank or lower. For example: A Lieutenant, Royal Navy, with an acting rank of Lieutenant Commander, cannot give an order to a Commander - unless the junior officer is acting by Warrant and is the designated Captain of a ship. However, any officer in charge of a vessel, may make a request (not an order) to a Senior Officer. The exception is Whale Island, where Gunnery Officers are trained; or other Command Training. While actually carrying out training, Senior Officers are obliged to accept the orders of a junior officer or rating.
