Well “Other Ranks” it is then. While a Commonwealth term, it is also used by NATO, is less dismissive than “Lower Ranks”, has a formal definition, and a ready acronym OR. So I can use both depending upon space and won’t need to explain the acronym.
Spurred by some flailing on TMP, I’ve added a few things – lances of the hussars, the official rules on wearing or slinging the pelisse, speculation on the rifled carbine (stutzer) bandolier of the heavy cavalry, some revisions on woodwork color based on my flag research, and some observations on the artillery prickers. Also a spell check;-)
