|Thank you very much for your complete and thorough information. You know I'm very interested in Russian rank insignia, but my ability to read Russian is limited. It’s therefore difficult for me to comprehend the regulations I might find on the net. In this case, I misread the size of the stripes, and did not study the shoulder boards careful enough. Having seen in later uniform regulations images of one, two and three narrow stripes, I believed that they also existed in the 1947 regulations.

My point is, that in the books there seems to be a ... call it "rift" betwee the uptimer dominated branches (AF and Navy) that go mostly with the US insignia and possibly the Army, with a lot of downtimers. Also, the Swedish navy seems to stand alone, while in the Army the units are either "Old Guard" or swamped with CoC members, while no clear indication exsits as to a centralised regulation regarding insignia. MEDIC, where are you hiding???? We need you! ...|
