Generally Surgeons held the grade of Major and Assistant Surgeons of First Lieutenant or Captain. The letter “M.S.” was sometimes worn on headgear in place of the “U.S.” in staff officers’ wreaths. This was also a practice not condoned by Regulations and something also done by members of other staff departments.
