Historical Teamspeak Icons

Historical Icons for teamspeak!

THIS THREAD WILL KEEP BEING UPDATED

So after looking around I noticed nobody really had any decent 16x16 historical icons so I've gone and made some. Feel free to help yourself to them

I will be taking requests for other nation's and some regiment icons but can not promise I can deliver ie. Russia and Austria I can't find any real historical reference for their ranks. To apply simple put in these details
Code: [Select]
Nation:
Requested Icon(s):
Reference material: *required (can be images or links, use spoilers!)

Please do say if your regiment begins to use these! It took a lot of time making these and I'd love to know who chooses to use them.

The United Kingdom

The British Lieutenant and Ensign shared the same shoulder epaulettes and the Captain is denoted by his tassels being thicker then the Lieutenant and Ensign's ones. The Company officer ones are not for all regiments, many had different versions due to different facings or other reasons. Some regiments has silver officer epaulettes.

Many Regiment used silver epaulettes instead of gold. Why they did I have no idea.

There was also a Colour Sergeant for Rifles.

Contrary to the belief of most people on here Staff Corporal and such where ranks only used by the horse gurads. Sergeant and such was used by most Cavalry regiments

There is no real denotation of Company that can be used for all regiment, due to them all having different facings, aside from the plum for most regiments but here are some other variants. The highland one are the small bit holding the plum in place and for many it is also the cross belt.

Not all regiments used the silver officer cross belt buckle.

France

Now the Chef de Bataillon and Colonel share the same icon in this because a half epaulette would look out of place. The Colonel had two full epaulettes on his shoulders whilst the Chef de Bataillon had one full one on his left shoulder and a half one (Just the body no tassels) on his right.

The Caporal-Fourrier was a pain as well. The extra stripe was worn just bellow the shoulder whilst the chevrons where at the hem of the selves.

Most NCO ranks have either a chevron version or a stripe version. Not all though, like the Hussards.

I've thrown in the service stripes as a bonus. The ranks went Soldat to Caporal there was no in between so I recommend using the service stripes as SoD and SoP is you use them.

Hussards

I've left the plates blank as a kind of template so people using them can put their regimental number into them. If you want me to do it for you just drop a note on the thread and I'll get it done.

If you can't tell the difference between the Chef de Bataillon and Colonel an easier way is to use the plums uses the officers to spot them at greater distances if you couldn't see their epaulettes.

Chasseurs à Cheval used the same plums as the Hussards but the 4, 5 and 6ème of the Hussards become the 5, 6 and 7ème of the Chasseurs.

Prussia

It was clear when looking these up that Prussian soldiers would have had a hard time telling officers apart. If you'd like your icon coloured to the correct Prussian region do ask.

Junior Officer stands for Oberleutnant, Leutnant and Hauptmann
Senior Officer stands for Major, Oberstleutnant and Oberst

Japan

During World War II the ranks were worn on the collar for the Army. For the Navy the enlisted men and NCOs had it on their sleaves and the officers had them on their collars and shoulders. Different colours were worn around the rank for officers to denote what part of the Navy they are a part of and around the cap badge for the navy.

During 1942 the Japanese Imperial Navy changed the name of its Enlisted ranks. B stand for Before 1942 and A stands for After 1942

After World War 2 Japan was forbidden from having a proper standing army. Today what people call the "Japanese Army" is really the Japanese Self-Defense Force.

Spain

The Army and Air Force variations are the epaulette variations whilst the Navy one is the shoulder worn variations. The rank of Capitán General is held by His Majesty the King of Spain as his constitutional role.

Russia

The annoying thing about the Russia is that they kept changing their ranks. These early ones are worn on the collar.

Lance Corporal and Corporal become Lance Bombardier and Bombardier for the Royal Artillery.

In 1881 the rank of Ensign was removed as a general purpose officer rank. From then until 1902 the most junior ranked officer was a Lieutenant

Hi,

awesome job on these icons, they do look really good !
Just to help a little bit, you wrote "Compaine" for the french word of "Company", but this is actually written "Compagnie". Another thing, for numbers, no big deal, but it is "2ème - 3ème - 4ème" and so on, "1er" and "1ère" are correct though.
