Why oh why is he wearing stars?
This what your talking about?
You tell him!
yep thats the one
hmm is this a wah ???
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 ?
^ PMSL floppyjocky, nice one!
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.

Well done that man...Carry On.
And at McDonalds, I was served by a 5 star spotty yesterday...
