RND Wearing rate v Army Rank

Recommended Posts

NR72

Hi all, 

 

Question - I have continually heard post 1916 the RND Wearing RN rate on left arm and the equivalent army rank on the right 

 

The only time I have see this I s on 2 photos , firstly a lad from Hawke Bn wearing a lance corporal stripe to denote him being a AB higher grade and Chief Flook wearing a Army crown on his lower right sleeve.

 

Has anyone Seen and can show me a Leading hand wearing corporals stripes or a Petty Officer wearing Sargents stripes ?

 

Thank you

Attached photo is of Petty Officer A.Buckman DCM.  with PO insignia and Sergeant's chevrons. Photo is some time after the award of his DCM in 1917 - see the London Gazette 23/3/1917
