§ Sir Smedley Crooke
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider 1455W the advisability of allowing sergeant-majors and troop quarter-master sergeants in Home Guard H.A.A. batteries to wear the badges of their rank in order that they can be distinguished from the other sergeants?
§ Sir J. Grigg
There is no sergeant-major or troop quarter-master sergeant in a Home Guard H.A.A. troop. There is a colour sergeant and a sergeant and they wear the appropriate badges. Where there are two or more troops, a battery headquarters is formed and this has on its establishment a company sergeant-major and a company quarter-master sergeant. They also wear the appropriate badges.
