In modern day Canadian Forces, the ranks of CWO, MWO and WO are worn on the forearm of the CF uniform. Where were the equivalent ranks worn on the BD during WWII? A reference picture would be most appreciated.
Thank you.

Thanks Yorkie
I was aware of the staff Sergeant rank position. I was more interested in the ranks of Warrant officers I, II and III. (my mistake for not being clear with my request). Since my post, I found a written confirmation that those ranks were sown on the forearm. All I need now is a photograph.
Thanks again.
