If you were to use this document from the 'pro's' as your only reference then you might be led to believe that the TRF (8455-99-492-9115) is worn with the stripes horizontal, or that the top edge of the LAC insignia was flat (135-5613) or that insignia, shoulder straps in MTP simply don't exist for the rank of Sgt or Cpl.
''Experts'' sometimes hold useful information.
