A Noble Riddle


I rank higher than the privates,

Commander of the Line,

The uniform my noble goal

Security ‘cross time.

Underway and under knots

My medal borne with pride,

Within my grasp a flag, sans mast

All noblemen would fly.

Slangster pins it to the wall

Tie clip

The line is what would normally be called a "gig" line in the service . . . the straight line of shirt with tie held fast by the clip. Above the privates (ahem :), and under knotted tie, the flag without a mast worn by Nobleman (gentleman).
