I wonder if it is actually:
Tho's Kellar O.S.
Marines Serg't Radcliff, Privates Kuhn & Cressman
was the second-lowest rank of the 19th century United States Navy, ranking above landsman and below seaman. Promotion from landsman to ordinary seaman required three years of experience or re-enlistment. An ordinary seaman who gained six years of experience and "knew the ropes", that is, knew the name and use of every line in the ship's rigging, could be promoted to seaman. An ordinary seaman's duties aboard ship included "handling and splicing lines, and working aloft on the lower mast stages and yards."Sergeant
is "A noncommissioned rank in the U.S. Army or Marine Corps that is above corporal and below staff sergeant."
"In the U.S. Marine Corps, private (PVT)
only refers to the lowest enlisted rank, just below private first class. A Marine Corps private wears no uniform insignia and is sometimes described as having a "slick sleeve" for this reason. Most new, non-officer marines begin their military career as a private. In the Marine Corps, privates first class are not referred to as "privates"; It is more appropriate to use either "private first class" or "PFC"."
