    what other pieces of insignia or patches does a gunnery sarge have?????????

    it's a corporal first class.

    depends on whether you class the black stripes as the rank or the white inbetween

    on reflection - i believe it is an army sgt 1st class !
    different insignia to the marine corps

    so is this british or american, just asumed as it's a US show that it wud be american

    it's american - we don't have the stripes underneath - just 1 for private, 2 corporal, 3 Sergeant, 3 plus crown Staff Sergeant

    are you wanting an English first lieutenant or and american one?

    english is 2 "pips" whereas american is 1 bar. standby for pics

    Privates or (equivalent Guardsman, Gunner, Craftsman, Kingsman etc) don't carry any sort of stripe.

    Lance Corporal (or eviquvalent) is 1 chevron \/

    I done comms ended up working for BT, hated that kipling thing.
    All corps/regitments play a vital role, without the engineers you get no bridges, without the loggies you get no blankets or food, without the signals you would get no comms without the Infantry you win't win wars. I would mention the REME fixing stuff but they don't.

    All examples. RE do alot more than bridges

    kipling was ace...

    still working in comms now - Look up VT group - we are in forest moor -

    you may have used the c/s Architect possibly to do a phone patch??

    we mainly talk to the RAF pilots but still occasionally talk to squaddies !

    I think we would be run by a Nazi regime or maybe even Japanese.

    the rank on the guys arm is a Sergeant First Class of the US Army ...

    i ain't a nazi or a commie - but i reckon they couldn't do a worse job than what we've had over the last 20 years !! why not give someone else a go.. lmao !

    It's USMC, not sure what rank would guess Staff Sergeant
    Edit I think it's corporal

    Lol class,I'm a big war time fan. Love all the war films,series and documentaries. What would be over the right breast pocket,because in the pic there is like something written above the pocket in a half moon shape??? Would it just be Sarge first class???

    Original Poster

    To me it looks like gunnery sarge I wish we could get an actual agreement on what it is cos I don't wanna do sommit that it ain't

    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/vinylkiller/Image17.gif

    left breast pocket would be the name - right breast pocket would be corps - army / navy / marine etc..

    Sgt 1st Class

    No idea, my daughter was messing, realised and deleted.
    It's a USMC rank as signified by the crossed rifles, looks like 2 chevrons but the Cpl rank doesn't have the under chevron thing.

    thats what i thought to begin with. although the black on green is supposed to show the black line as rank - the red/yellow stripes are for dress uniforms - so quite possibly gunny Marine

    So basically this is army and not marine like my pic suggested

    Just noticed, starfleet? The American have space marines now? LOL just messing

    i would go with a Marine Gunny Sgt - final answer... lol sorry

    couldn't find any mention of an Army rank with crossed rifles in middle -

    rifles normally denote sniper / marksman and are worn under the rank or on the cuff of sleeve ( in brit army )
