Lieutenant at sea
Oberleutnant zur See
Rank group : Teams-NCOs-NCO-NCOs-Lieutenant-Captains-Staff officers-Generals
The lieutenant (at sea) was the second highest rank in the rank group of the lieutenant in the People's Navy of the GDR and was comparable to the NATO rank code OF-1. He corresponded to the lieutenant of the NVA.
The official rank of the People's Navy was initially lieutenant in the sea , but was later changed to lieutenant . In individual linguistic usage, however, the traditional designation Leutnant zur See was retained.
The rank badge consisted of shoulder pieces with a navy blue background and parallel silver cords. On the shoulder piece, two square gold-colored shoulder stars were attached next to each other. The sleeve badge consisted of a yellow single and a narrow strip. The career badge was sewn over it. In contrast to all other German naval forces, the sleeve badges only covered about 40% of the sleeve circumference.
Empire and Navy
In the German Empire and in the Navy , the Leutnant zur See (until December 31, 1889 Unterleutnant zur See ) designated the lowest rank in the rank group of the lieutenant , comparable to the NATO rank code OF-1. Here he corresponded to the lieutenant in the army and air force.
Engineer officers wore a cogwheel instead of the starfish on their sleeves and shoulder pieces, medical officers the Aesculapian staff, naval weapons service 2 crossed tubes, barrage weapons service a raise (symbolized mine), intelligence service a lightning bolt, administrative officers the Mercury staff.
In the Kaiserreich the lieutenant at sea wore a stripe half as narrow as in the illustration. Naval officers wore a crown instead of a starfish.
