You've become a Flight Corporal.

EDIT: Hmmm... maybe I should look at the previous posts before posting.

And Polaris is just chock full of pr0n, Starman.

That's what we would like you to think. Come to Polaris - we don't bite.

Not sure how the RCAC does it, but in the Canadian infantry the rank with the same insignium, Master Corporal, is the first NCO rank. Ordinary Corporal is really just a senior soldier, like the American PFC. So a new Flight Corporal has apparently just reached leadership. Congratulations.

A bizarre piece of CF trivia: Master Corporal is technically not a rank but an appointment, like sergeant-major or adjutant rather than sergeant or captain, even though it has its separate insignium like all the true ranks. This sounds quite incredible, and absolutely senseless, but at least as of 1990 or so it was true. I looked it up myself in the Queen's Regulations and Orders, and found it there, to my astonishment, in plain black and white. That was a long time ago, but the status then was already about 30 years old, so it probably hasn't changed yet. In practice it makes no difference at all, of course. But if it hasn't been changed, you can win many free beers with a bet on this.

A Canuck friend of mine tells me that the RCAC is basically a high school military indoctrination program which trains youth in the merits of good citizen ships by dangling the carrot of seemingly important levels and badges until they are so far in the depths of boring that there is no escape.

Sorta like Boy Scouts, but they don't do any community service projects.

SoT nailed it. Flight-corporal is identical to master corporal in that respect.

I'm glad I read this thread with my MacBook Pro instead of my desktop. That cookie would have made the page stretch on anything with a shorter width.

My memories of boy scouts are mostly of whittling, badges, knot tying, pocket knives, and cheesy songs. Oh and fires-- lots and lots of fires.

Musta skipped these supposed community service days. Don't think I'd have enjoyed those much.
