HYPOTHETICAL RANKS Hypothetical Marshal of the Commonwealth insignia (242)
Concerning the Lord High Constable insignia: One thing I noticed about the Admiralty Anchor insignia used by the Lord High Admiral is how it might (hypothetically) be replaced with a designed incorporating a sword(s), which seems the most appropriate symbol for the Army to use (and which is also used as a symbol on the flags of Lord-Lieutenants). Perhaps a design similar to that used as a badge by Knight Bachelors would work? (In real life, it wasn't until 1926 that Knight Bachelors were allowed such a badge) Alternatively, perhaps the anchor could be replaced with a design based upon the Order of the Garter?...
