    • A captain of a war vessel whose title appeared, or had been "posted", in seniority list of the navy.
    • A captain of a war vessel whose name showed up, or was “posted,” when you look at the seniority set of the British navy, as distinguished from a commander whoever title wasn't so posted. The expression has also been used in the United States navy; but no these types of payment as post-captain was ever acknowledged in a choice of solution, therefore the term has actually dropped into disuse.
