Question: Why is the British Army rank insignia a Bath Star?

Posted by /u/Dctreu on


Just found out the pip/rank insignia for officers used by most regiments of the British Army is a Bath Star :

It's a simplified version of the insignia of the Order of the Bath, an order of chivalry. Does anyone know why this order was chosen in particular?
