AMERICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA US Space Force (95)
Yes, I suspect you are correct — there are far, far bigger things to fix than rowing back on the establishment of the USSF. It’s something of a done-deal now and will likely cost as much to undo as to proceed and, in fairness, something like this was probably going to happen at some point in the future anyway. I was aware that the “naval ranks” concept had been floated in the Hill and subsequently adopted by the House but I wasn’t aware that it had some popularity amongst the troops. I wonder if there’ll be some push-back to try to retain USAF/Army-style tank titles or if Gen. Raymond will just roll with it and accept the idea? It does have some merits... I’ve had another look at their new “logo” and I’m still not convinced by it. It’s too fussy to be just a simplified version of the basic Delta but lacks a real connection to the other established USSF symbols. They would have been better sticking with the Delta on the Globe background (likely with the Orbit component, although it would have worked without). Consistent use of the Eagle, Globe and Anchor has given the USMC a strong and lasting symbol that follows through from seal and flag to uniforms and even online presence. Sure, there would be further Star Trek jokes but that’s gonna happen pretty much whatever they do, especially if they adopt Naval ranks — ignore the jibes, weather that storm and in a few years it’ll just become the accepted norm. I guess the question, from the point of view of our particular interest group, is whether they feel that use of Naval titles really requires the use of Naval-style cuff lace and shoulder-boards for officers, alongside the Army-style collar pins. I can imagine a service dress that looks something like the USN tan service dress from WW2 (the style they considered re-introducing a few years back) but in black with white or silver-grey shirts. That way they could have Naval-style officer stripes for formal wear but keep them to just the shoulder-boards rather than full sleeve stripes. They could then keep the metal pins for short collars. It seems pretty likely that any bullion components such as the lace stripes and the visor decoration for the senior officer formal covers will be silver (or “platinum” in their terminology), against a black background. I wonder how much they’ve had to go back to the drawing board because of all this?!...

AFRICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA Ethiopia (1975-1991) Communist Army (4)
Interesting, though I surmise these were from Haile Selassie's era, not the Derg period. Due to Ethiopia using a different calendar. However, I don't know if they are prototypes. I want to ask the source....
