COMMAND, in the royal navy, implies the rank and power of an officer who has the management of a ship of war, of whatever kind, under twenty guns, as sloops of war, armed ships, or bomb-vessels. He is intitled master and commander, (capitaine du petit état, Fr.) and ranks with a major in the King's army.

COMMANDER is also expressed of a large wooden mallet used on sundry occasions in a ship.
