It was reported in 1853 that Ernest whilst serving as a midshipman on the British ship-of-war Hastings accidently shot and killed a fellow midshipman Marquis de Lisbod. This obviously didn't have an affect on his future promotions.
He was promoted from Captain to Rear Admiral in December 1876, it may be interesting to note that at the same time his cousin Prince Viktor of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Count Gleichen was promoted to Rear Admiral on the Retired List.
Ernest was further promoted from Rear Admiral to Vice Admiral in December 1881
