Any idea which officer this is?

Again, it goes back to the cap for me. I feel pretty confident saying that cap is NOT a civilian cap of the era. The top is too flat and the edge too stiff to be a civilian cap. I put it in one of Browne's pics for comparison:

I'll defer to Ioannis' statement that a ship's officer would most certainly have not been walking down A deck at that time and the pursers would have been busy with passengers. But what about Dr. O'Loughlin??

Or perhaps Master at Arms Bailey making the rounds?

Point being, whoever it is, they are very likely wearing a naval service cap, not a civilian cap.
