Note: Chaplains are commissioned officers without rank. However, they are afforded an honorary rank for reasons of protocol, ceremonial occasions and for saluting purposes. Ranks are based on the Chaplain classifications.  Division 1 = Lieutenant, Division 2 = Lieutenant Commander, Division 3 = Commander, Division 4/Head of Denomination = Captain, Division 5 (Principal Chaplain) = Commodore.
