Captain - Junior Grade
There were no exact rules for reaching this rank from the rank of Korvettenkapitän. During the war it was usually at least 18 months.
The Fregattenkapitän wore the braid shoulder-strap with one star (see left), the Fregattenkapitän (Ing.) has a cog-wheel on the shoulder-strap.
They had a broader stripe on the shade of cap. On the sleeve they wear three broad strips, between the second and the third stripe was a narrow one and the star at the top (engineer officers also wore the cog-wheel).
