I have NCOs with halberds – I just assume they are sergeants because as the ever astute Gunfreak has noted, its not like they have chevrons

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Miniature Wargames 268, Anthony Dawson reports that while sergeants traditionally carried the halberd, corporals may have carried halberds as well.
The stores muster at Pontefract and Sandal indicates a double complement of halberds to sergeants. Either the stores had plenty of spares, there were twice as many sergeants or, more likely, sergeants and corporals were issued halberds.
Do your corporals carry halberds?
