 Troop Sergeant Major - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the British Army, the Troop Sergeant Major (TSM) is the senior NCO in a Royal Artillery troop, usually a Warrant Officer Class 2.
This differs from a cavalry troop or infantry platoon, in which the highest-ranking NCO is usually a sergeant.
It was introduced in 1813 to replace the Quartermaster as the senior NCO of a troop, and was roughly equivalent to a Colour Sergeant in the infantry.

 Operation Jubilee: The Disaster at Dieppe — Part 2 19 August 1942
Troop Sergeant-Major Jimmy Dunning then set up his 2in mortar team close to the edge of the wood and after his first bomb fell short, the second went right into a pile of cordite and the resulting explosion silenced the fire coming from the battery.
As the troops landed the RAF went into action but the results of the initial ground attacks were disappointing with few weapon positions on the headlands being knocked out and neither battery seriously affected, although the smoke laid by the bombers did give a measure of protection to the assault forces while it lasted.
The majority of German fighters consisted of the Focke-Wulf Fw190 that had a superior performance over that of the Spitfire Mk V and VI who equipped the majority of the Spitfire squadrons at Dieppe, although four squadrons had the new Mk IX that performed on nearly equal terms with the Fw190.

 The Ultimate Sergeant Major - American History Information Guide and Reference
An alternate usage of Command Sergeant Major is the senior NCO of a headquarters unit at battalion level or above; the soldier filling this position should carry the rank of Sergeant Major, but personnel shortages may, from time to time, force this sergeant major position to be held by a senior Master Sergeant.
In particular, the Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) (WO1) is the senior NCO of a battalion (in the infantry) or of a regiment (in other branches), equivalent to a Command Sergeant Major in the United States.
In the late 19th century, the cavalry RSM and infantry Sergeant Major were among a number of senior non-commissioned positions that were confirmed with warrants, making them warrant officers.
