The Captain General Royal Queensland Marines Corps is the ceremonial head of the Royal Queensland Marines Corps. The uniform and insignia worn by the Captain General are those of a Royal Marines Colonel or higher depending on the appointee's current or previously held rank. This position is distinct from that of the Commandant General Royal Queensland Marines, the professional head (who is ranked as a major-general). The Captain General is appointed by the Monarch of the Kingdom of Queensland.
