I hate these lists of ranksbut: how about using this one, instead?
Army                            Navy
Sous-Lieutenant                 Ensiegne de Vaisseau de 2eme classe
Lieutenant                      Ensiegne de Vaisseau de 1ere classe
Capitaine                       Lieutenant de Vaisseau
Commandant                      Capitaine de Corvette
Lieutenant-Colonel              Capitaine de Fregate
Colonel                         Capitaine de Vaisseau

Notice that the French naval ranks go from Ensign to Lieutenant to Captain.
