The Canadian Provost Corps
1939 - 1946

Canadian Women's Army Corps Provost

Rank Insignia

CWAC Officers held King's Commissions in the Active Militia. Upon the formation of the CWAC, Officer's rank insignia consisted of metal maple leaves and beavers worn on the epaulettes. Shortly thereafter, this pattern of insignia was withdrawn and replaced by standard army pattern pips and crowns.

CWAC Warrant Officer and NCO rank insignia followed standard army pattern, but was smaller in size and had a beech brown backing. As with the men's rank insignia, individual rank stripes were sewn onto a separate backing. In late 1944, a new pattern of NCO insignia was adopted, the rank stripes being stitched together.
