Response to Re: Canadian/US Rank Insignia
At one time, early eighties, whilst training at Fort Drum, we Warrant Officers were considered to be officers, therefore accommodations were of BOQ status.
Prior to that, wearing the miniature WO crown on our newly issued monochrome cbt uniforms, was confused by the Americans as being Field Grade officers,(Major) therefore we were accorded Snr Offr accommodations and priveleged seating in the Mess.This was further exacerbated when, at one time, we had to put our cbt rank on shoulder slip ons.
What a hoot! Great times, great memories.
Just thought I'd pass this on.
