Ships, Sailing, Maritime / Visa Capitaneria Di Porto
Italian term or phrase: 2° Capo Np.
This is a translation for a Seaman's book/ work visa.
Does anyone know how to translate the 2° Capo?? I know that Np. stands for Port Helmsman but I'm not sure about the 2° capo. Could in be "second in charge??"

Second Chief

se questo è un grado della marina, si tratta di un sottufficiale ed in Marina si definisce "second chief"
Secondo Capo - Second Chief

per me 2IC significa comandante in seconda o vicecomandante.
Infatti ho trovato esempi in Internet che si riferiscono a diverse cose; al comando di un plotone (dopo il comandante) a quello di una nave a quello di un reggimento!
