Cdn Provost Corps: rank error (just a minor one)

Unread postby nelsy58 » Fri Apr 14, 2006 1:51 pm

The brigadier rank shown for the Cdn provost Corp or the 30s and 40s is incorrect. This (the cross sword and scabbard) was used for brigadiers in the British Empire until the early 1920s. The Brits then changed the emblem to the current crown and three stars in a triangle formation. Changed the name from Brigadier-General to just Brigadier as well (something about too many generals in the post-WW I army). Everyone else - Empire/Commonwealth as well as those following along - changed as well. Cheers
