CWO vs. Warrant Officer articles[edit]

Why is Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) a separate article covering information already contained within the Warrant Officer article? Not to mention that the term "Chief Warrant Officer" is not exclusive to the Canadian armed forces. (Born2flie 04:07, 2 September 2006 (UTC))

I have recommended a merge. (Born2flie 05:58, 5 September 2006 (UTC))

I oppose. Please see my comment under Talk:Warrant Officer. --SigPig 11:25, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Warrant Officer (Canada)[edit]

I am informally suggesting that this page, Chief Petty Officer 1st Class, Regimental Sergeant-Major, and Warrant Officer be combined into a single article named Warrant Officer (Canada). ALthough the CPOs are not "called" WOs, they still have the same priveleges and entitlements, and thus would be better covered together.

picture to insignia section[edit]

I somehow doubt that the slip-on insigne for a chief warrant officer would feature the text "CADET". Can somebody check the correctness of this please? 85.178.75.53 (talk) 19:08, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

You are correct. The rank that is worn by a Chief Warrant Officer in the forces does not have the word 'CADET' under it. The rank shown in the picture is the equivalent rank in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, but the rank is actually Warrant Officer First Class. The Royal Canadian Army Cadets use the title of Chief Warrant Officer for this rank. Perwisky (talk) 18:49, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Able Seaman (rank) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 23:47, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
