    James Bond question.

    When did 007 (Commander Bond) start out-ranking the head of "Q" branch (Major Boothroyd)

    When Fleming created the characters a Commander in the navy would have been the equivalent rank to a major in the army. It was in the 70s or 80s I think that naval ranks began to be upgraded, possibly as at the time we were putting much more bright and shiny weapons onboard smaller ships that commanders were in charge of, and using those smaller ships in many more tactical operations like the Falklands.

      Are you trying to set a record for the most threads started in a day?

          Thanks Rogin, I'd always thought they were equivalent ranks too.
