Welcome to the Military culture, traditions, and heraldry task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.


This task force covers all topics related to military heraldry, customs and traditions, including flags, decorations, badges, emblems, practices, holidays/anniversaries/remembrances, music, etiquette, ranks, slang, and other topics.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Culture-traditions-and-heraldry-task-force=yes or Culture=y to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Military culture, traditions, and heraldry task force articles.


If you approach anyone from this list for advice or help, please check their contributions first to check if they've edited recently. This list may contain people who have not edited Wikipedia in a long time.
