Thanks for the post & link.

I've seen reference to a rank of Sub-Inspector in the BSAP - presumably one star (pip).

Based on other police ranks in the British Empire, Deputy Commissioner would have the wreathed tipstaffs & a star; Commissioner would have the wreathed tipstaff & a Crown.

Cheers, Richard in Toronto

Thanks, sketor. That's a "duh" on my part:

(a) The Superintendent & Chief Superintendent insignia clearly used the Rhodesian lion rather than the Crown; and

(b) the ranks above Assistant Commissioner were listed, but not illustrated.

I missed both of those.

Presumably, prior to the Unilateral Declaration of Independence, the Crown would've been used rather than the lion.

Best, Richard still in snowy Toronto
