Wiki tells me that: Chief of the Imperial General Staff (CIGS) was the title of the professional commander of the British Army from 1908 until 1964. Prior to that period, the professional head of the army was entitled the Commander-in-Chief of the Forces (although briefly it had been Chief of the General Staff). Since 1964, the title of the head of the Army has been Chief of the General Staff. Obviously the title "Imperial" was something of an anachronism by 1964 and needed to be dropped. That this happened in 64 is roughly coincident with the election of Wilsons Labour Government. Are there any ancient arrsers who can tell me whether in fact this was labour party policy? Also, prior to the changes in 1964, the Australian CGS was also "Chief of the Australian Section of the Imperial General Staff" Were there any other Commonwealth sections of the IGS? If so, what happened to them after the change? Thanks in advance.
