Engineer Rear-Admiral was a rank of the Engineer Branch, and from 1915 the Military Branch, of the Royal Navy.


From 1 April, 1903, Chief Inspectors of Machinery were styled Engineer Rear-Admiral. The new rank ranked with Rear-Admirals,[1] so in effect all Chief Inspectors of Machinery received an advance in rank of one step.

The qualification for Engineer Rear-Admiral as given in the 1913 King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions were:

277. Engineer Rear-Admiral.—The qualification for Engineer Rear-Admiral is long and meritorious service.
