Under § 1262 and the Act of June 30, 1882, 22 Stat. 118, an aide to an admiral is not entitled to have his longevity pay calculated upon the additional pay which he receive as aide, that being under § 1261, Rev.Stat., an allowance in addition to, and not a part of, the pay of his rank.
41 Ct.Cl. 400 reversed on this point.
The facts, which involve the construction of §§ 1098 and 1261 of the Revised Statutes, and the opening clause of the Navy Personnel Act of March 13, 1899, are stated in the opinion.
