Spanish term or phrase: el oficial más antiguo
Se refiere a la posición (ranking) en la que se encuentra un oficial.
Por ejemplo: hay tres oficiales con el rango de Capitán, pero uno es de la promoción del 2012 y los otros de la promoción del 2014. Aquí el oficial más antiguo sería el Capitán de la promoción de 2012.

¿Existe alguna forma de referirse a esto en inglés? No me suena para nada bien la traducción literal.
