I understand the recognition of rank but it looks like he really wants that recognition. Fact is, he is a Lt Gen so the following and runners around him should make even the most complete d**khead see he needs a salute. NO NEED......DRESS REGS!

If he's a Lt Gen, he's diffy a star.

ooops, you are correct, I read the front page bottom first and not the front page top (he did look young, as a 2 star he still does). Should the front front page top not have have come first? Good obs, hasnt the 3* got a Prince Charles movement going on with the hand and wrist.

OK the wah question was a bit off

I took it that he is working in a multi-national unit where the star sytem is recognised,

He is probably tired of spams using their new found English skills ie: Hello Mate! what does that badge mean ? and can I swap it for my rifle ?

That's Maj Gen John Cooper isn't it or am I going blind in my old age?

Easier rank recognition for Yanks? :?
Yes its him. A Maj Gen. Appropriately enough, wearing 2 stars on his collar, in addition to his British rank slide. Hardly the first time a British General Officer has worn US rank in this way while serving in a US-led formation.

Link to the SOLDIER story is HERE.

And at McDonalds, I was served by a 5 star spotty yesterday... 8O

as far as im aware if theyre serving as part of a multinational unit, then they have the stars so everyone can tell who the fcuk they are. Might be quite embarrasing otherwise, having some Hauptfeldwebel order one of our brigadier's, not realising he shud be cr@pping himself!

Badges, we don’t need these stinking badges!

If I remember during the Gulf war, certain officers wore a rank badge hanging from their top pocket.

But to sew it onto the uniform goes a bit far, but I wonder if he has them sewn on his helmet!

Lizard!

Wearing US and UK rank alongside each other is pretty much an accepted way of life for anyone working in US HQs.

Lots of exchange and LO staffs do it as well.
