Second World War

Marine Grade Insignia

PART ONE: General, Field, Company, and Warrant Officers

General Officers

Marine generals wore stars similar to those of Army generals in grades to full general. I have no original examples of those of Marine general officers.

Field Officers

Colonel Lt. Colonel Major
Colonel Lieutenant

Company Officers

Captain First Lt. Second Lt.
Captain First

Warrant Officers

Chief Warrant Officer Warrant Officer
Chief Warrant
Warrant Officer

The grades of Chief Warrant Officer and Warrant Officer were established during the Second World War when the preexisting single warrant officer grade was divided into two. I do not have an original example of the insignia, but it is a gold bar with a central red enamel stripe.
