    Quite appropriate that Phil the Greek should give the REME corporal his inch of glory, him being colonel in chief of the REEMs an' arl.

    They screwed up one of the photo captions, unless that is a Sgt Mjr rankslide in the QRH.......?
  4. 2nd picture... do SSM's/CSM's in QRH were 3 stripes and a crown then? Or do MOD journalists not understand the rank structure?

    ETA: beaten to it by Mongo...
  5. I believe the rank of SSGT in the QRH carries the name of Sergeant Major.
  6. In the QOH, one of the two regiments formed into the QRH, all SSgt's were called 'Sergeant Major' rather than 'Staff'

    It's possible that the photographer or MOD journo heard this and added it to the phot legend
