Reason for Rank?Edit
I find the (uncited) claimm that the rank is an attempy at rationalizing the out ranking of a lieutentant-general to a major-general dubious and perhaps original research. Major General is simply a contraction of [historical spelling deliberate] Serjeant-Major General. See the article General for a greater explanation. Dainamo (talk) 19:34, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
- Is this rank "lieutenant colonel general" or "sub-colonel general" ? If it's referencing the rank of sub-colonel/subcolonel, then wouldn't it be "subcolonel general" ? -- 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:40, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Find a reference, and be bold, my friend. Shem (talk) 17:44, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
