Re: [Gen'l Info] "Lance" Rank for NCOs

In 18th Century British Army, the term wasn't used but a "lance" corporal (i.e. corporal-in-training) would get an extra-button put on the right shoulder of his coat, in anticipation of a corporal's shoulder knot, to be placed there once he attained the actual rank.
