Unless there is some kind of military usage for the term "passed" -- I think they meant "former" or "retired" as the record indicates -- or it could mean "passed" as dead? Or passed over for promotion? What a huge typo! See attachment.

Actually, it's their correct rank.


"... passed assistant engineers, officers who have passed their examination for chief engineer, and who rank with lieutenants; and assistant engineers, who rank with ensigns or lieutenants."
