ww1 naval service abbreviations

Classification: Query
Can someone help me out with these abbreviations please?

My GGrandfather joined the Royal Navy in 1893 and retire in 1922 as CPO and subsequently Lieutenant.
On his service record as rating the following abreviation occur.
SGC, SGT, and CG
I have no idea what SGC represents and would I be correct in the assumption that SGT may be Sereant at Arms perhaps? Does CG represent CAptian of the guard?

On his PO record are the initials QDD, OOD and 2DD against some postings. What do these mean?

He clearly did well for himself . Having started out in life as a fisherman who joined the Royal Navy, he rose through the ranks, received the Medaile Militaire for services rendered during WW1 and retired as a Lieutenant. Not bad Grandad!
