Coronation Contingent, 1937

From a photo in 'The Sphere' 15th May 1937 showing the mounties who attended the Coronation of George VI. In the middle of the front row are Commissioner MacBrien and Assistant Commissioner Wood. The mountie nearest to us is a sergeant drill instuctor. The three stripes and crown denote the rank of sergeant (in the British army, this would denote a staff sergeant) and the crossed swords are for drill instructors or physical training instructors.
