Re: [Gen'l Info] A question of rank

I was able to clarify a few things for anyone interested:

The term SUBALTERN refers to any and all ranks of commissioned officers below that of Captain.

CORNET was the cavalry equivalent of the infantry rank of ENSIGN; both titles represent the lowest ranking commissioned officers. In most cases they have now been replaced by the rank of SECOND LIEUTENANT.
