Captain of HMS Queen Elizabeth "reassigned" to new role

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers who have taken the Oath, worn the uniform & even loitered in harm's way occasionally.

I’ll let you know if they ever just wear a commodore’s uniform as soon as chum replies.

Apparently it is a one star rank and a broad stripe on the sleeve, apart from the two carrier captains, who should call themselves 'captain' but are actually commodores. They have fancy shoulder pads now with one pip instead of the broad stripe. That's much clearer now.....

I should have added that those two dress as captains.
