Possible, although that was normally a job for a VA.   However I think he got his third stripe a little time before he became the C in C Home Flt. Don’t know if he was still in the Med at that stage, though.  

It’s frequently been suggested that his early death verged on being a disaster for the RN as it cleared the way for Pound who was a plodder by comparison.
