sergaint major i think?
No, definately not, but it is a damsel. Looked through zillions of different damsel pics last night and could not find one exactly like the one Herkie has. I have seen and collected these fish before and they definately look the same in juvenile and adult form. At first I though it was a Chrysiptera biocellata, but not too sure
