Wait a minute, Blackstar... you had to Google to find out what "Cpl" stand for?

It's commonly used to refer to Couple on dating and adult sites as well, so one could be easily confused if their into that and never had any contact with the military. Corporal also isn't as common a military rank in the US as it is in the Commonwealth.

Well I know it due to my dad being in the military and M*A*S*H. Radar was a corporal I think.

Now I'm confused. In the US, it's a grade, not a rank.

I have never been in the military or know people in the military. And that rank isn't that common in the US. At least from what little knowledge I have of the real military.

As in pay grade? The commonwealth uses a different system, you have a certain rank and within it are different pay grades.

I may be wrong but I thought that technically "grade" referred to non-coms and "rank" to officers.

Maybe for you guys, not for us. Certain ranks are actually appointments in the CF, like Master Corporal/Seaman and Commodore.

I must say that this representation of the Durch forces is rather outdated, as we don't use such equipment anymore in Afghanistan, as far as I know.

I haven't seen a picture of him in a while, so I cannot remamber what he looks like.
But based on the reference, I think that is Karl.
