French term or phrase: submarine crew terms (GB)
I have a list of French submarine crew to put into British English. Any ideas as to sources for this info? Has to be 100% British and 100% reliable!

Thansk for your help, but this had to be British and military grades do differ so greatly from one country to another, so I couldn't use your suggestion. It's for a museum and so those who are interested will pay attention to this very type of detail. In fact, in the end, I spoke to an ex-French nuclear submarine commander I translate for who put me in contact with a British equivalent! Luck!
