Badges of Rank PowerPoint

#1
Hi all,
Just wondered if anyone had the above mentioned for a last minute presentation I have offered to give a local army cadets, who are really struggling.
Thanks in advance,
Linso

They use this crud? The word Corp does not exist, except in the mind of some idiot who calls a corporal by it. Said idiot should quickly be covered in spittle by the corporal concerned.

.... and that one has a number of errors, the most obvious being the bottom of the RAF tree is an Aircraftsman (AC), a recruit - no badge, the Aircraftsman badge shown should actually be Leading Aircraftsman, (LAC) which doesn't mean a lot except he either has a trade and has not yet held it for a year, or has been in a year trying to get one.

Surprise surprise that something the MoD has up in its offices isn't entirely accurate. Tragic.

Perhaps you can best assist the OP then dear fellow.

Not for me to set them right, but which one is plastered over MOD walls - "Special to Corp" or the cr@p falling from above - a metaphor I rather like, but with inaccuracies?

Do something useful or jog on.

Fair enough. I don't like to be negative so would add that the first half of your first linky is about as useful as the OP is likely to find, but WO2 needs an explanation. The second half is historically accurate but could confuse the kids - again at the Warrant Officer level.

RAF rank of "AC", "LAC" or "SAC" refers to Aircraftman (or Aircraftwoman). Not Aircraftsman/woman.

Juts to add to the confusion; the ACF do not have Warrant Officers. What appear to be Warrant officers are Sgt Maj Instructors (SMI), ie no warrant.


But you probably knew that.

Don't forget to tell them that sometimes the best term benefits come from 22 years as a Private/Gunner/Trooper/Airtrooper/Signaller/
Guardsman with ability on retirement to rub shoulders as equals with those that retired as RSM.

Which we constantly remind them off when they go on about the WOs and Sgts Mess....

Although the cadet forces do have a Warrant now, their officers no longer hold a queens commission, it’s now a warrant.

So does this mean that there are now British Warrant Officers who get saluted?
