  • Rank insignia & Heraldry

    I've searched through past posts, and I was surprised these links were missing.

    Unsure how to tell a Botswanan Staff Sergeant from an Azerbajani Corporal?

    For current rank insignia around the world:

    And for US Military Heraldry, past and present:

    This finally answered a question that had bugged me for ages. It certainly caused me a few problems years ago.

    (Do I outrank this guy or not, he saluted me?)

    "Why does 'SILVER outrank GOLD' in the US ?"
