Acting Serjeant Thomas Dominick Wallace

I note today that Acting Serjeant Thomas Dominick Wallace ( has been demoted back to 'Driver', his initial rank rather than his final rank. It would be really good if he could be re-instated to 'Acting Serjeant' please.

    Hi Keith
    Many thanks for that. I am not quite sure that I followed how to make a 'service' prominent, or creating an update to remove!!! However, I seem to achieved the desired result, so I won't worry too much about how I did it!

    What would we do without you guys being Volunteers - thank you!

    Regards, Penny

    Hello Penny,
    Any user can perform this change.

    What I usually do is to change the "service" on the unit and rank that I want to show as the prominent one, for instance "Canadian Navy". Once the change is made, I then go to unit and rank, click on the cog, and "remove my update". Lo and behold, the preferred unit and rank is restored.

    Kind regards
    IWM Volunteer
