High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A Viceroy's
Commissioned Officer (VCO) was a senior Indian member of the
British Indian Army. VCOs held appointments approximately
equivalent to Warrant Officers in the British Army, but held a
commission issued by the Viceroy. Also known as Indian Officers or
Native Officers, they were treated in almost all respects as
commissioned officers, but only had authority over Indian troops
and were subordinate to all British King's (and Queen's)
Commissioned Officers and King's Commissioned Indian Officers.These
ranks were created to facilitate effective liaison between the
British officers and their native troops. The soldiers who were
promoted to VCO rank had long service and good service records,
spoke reasonably fluent English, and could act as a common liaison
point between officers and men and as advisers to the British
officers on Indian affairs.
