Chief_Two, ever since he was a lowly New_WO1, has been harping on about his need to be saluted - it seems that US forces salute their Warrant Officers. He has been told in no uncertain terms, on numerous occasions, that it's not the done thing elsewhere and that many Warrant Officers take pride in their NOT being saluted. Chiefy has suggested that NATO should reconsider its traditions and come in line with the US policy. Obviously, the time has come for a poll on the issue. Please complete the poll, giving your views. The scenario is that you are a Junior Rank or Senior NCO (subordinate to a Warrant Officer) about to cross the path of an unknown Warrant Officer, whether he be of your own nationality or otherwise, for the first time. You are wearing whatever accoutrements that are necessary to allow you to salute a commissioned officer of your own nation (e.g. in the case of the British Army, headdress). The poll is open to all nationalities - the more the better - and to officers (remembering the scenario). If the poll turns out in favour of saluting WOs, I'll give the CGS a bell and get him to change the Regulations. If it turns out to be against, I'd hope that Chief_Two will phone his C-in-C and give him the good news. (Can't beat phone sex, can you?). Happy polling. (7 days and the clock is ticking).
