Remarks about Algeria

Unread postby Olivier Comault » Wed Jul 30, 2003 5:48 pm

The shoulder straps for Officers, at least in daily dress, are black, not dark green, and they are piped in gold.For General Officers , stars are smaller than drawn here, and there is a "Général de Corps d'Armée" ( General Mohamed Lamari ),
therefore with three stars. A four-stars rank is provided, but no one holds this at the moment.

The Algerian Navy has cuff rings also, and I saw a "Capitaine de Corvette" wearing a dress with both cuffrings and shoulder straps...

The Algerian Ministry of Defence has put a website up. It's quite complete regarding picture of ranks, uniforms and medals.

It appears the Algerians have modified their general officers grades by changing the swords. The old photos of GdC Lamari are similar to the ones depicted on this site, except his are curved more.

Newer photos from NATO meetings show different sword devices.
