For many years it was considered courteous to address flag officers by their Flag rank. This could still occur at RMYS although not normal practice.
When using the Flag Officer position in writing, it should commence with a capital letter if referring to the person eg “Commodore will present the trophy”. This is the preferred use and is not preceded by “the”. The alternative is “the commodore will present the trophy”, referring to the position which means it is preceded by “the” and a lowercase “c” is used.
