Vincent,
Are you looking for Merchant or Royal Navy?
If it's the latter, then Wikipedia is your best bet, check out the following links for RN Officers and Men.

Things have moved on a bit since 1958 when I was serving in HMS ALBION. Try www.royal-navy.mod.uk for latest rankings, both commissioned and ratings.

Try this site http://www.royal-navy.mod.uk/server/show/nav.3770
It looks as if it won't be long to have different branches in the Royal Navy, it is heading for the day that a couple of dozen ratings will be cross-trained in everything(Jester)
Or alternatively, will be like the yanks, with loads of badges down your arm to show all of the sub specialisations.:sweat:

I had to laugh when I clicked on the above link, then clicked on the branch badge for a CHEF and was confronted with a photograph of two aircrew - will they stop at nothing to glamorise the Chef's job. The nearest a Chef gets to a helicopter is when the pilot has to use his sick bag
