Equivalent Ranks in the British Navy, Army and Air Force.

This page hasn't any connection with serving in the Suez Canal Zone but the information on it would have been useful to me
when out there.  Seeing an Army and a RAF officer together, I was never sure if they were of equivalent rank or if  one was
senior to the other.  So I looked in one of my reference books, come up with the following and hope you find the list useful.
