Can anyone confirm the recent edit about Captain Angua? She's still a sergeant half-way through Thud! and I can't recall the promotion. --Old Dickens (talk) 23:57, 9 February 2013 (GMT)

I was reading Thud! and came across the section where she's called Captain and then through the rest of the book she's a sergeant afterwards. I think I was hasty in the revision when I came across it but, it stuck out in my mind since she seemingly attained the rank in Thud! and then lost it later in the same book through mysterious circumstances.

Flipping through, I noticed "sergeant" near the begging, middle and end. I didn't spot a "captain". --Old Dickens (talk) 02:45, 10 February 2013 (GMT)

Maybe its a mistake that's exclusive to the kindle edition I have. They only referenced her once as Captain in the beginning when she's showing Sally around so its easy to overlook. I don't have a physical copy to reference unfortunately.

Here's a screen shot of the passage with the title highlighted from the Kindle version of Thud!

Ah yes. It's "Sergeant" in my copy (HarperTorch pb, unfortunately). You might make an annotation. --Old Dickens (talk) 14:51, 10 February 2013 (GMT)

She is very definitely a Captain in I Shall Wear Midnight and may also have been in Snuff when processing Trevor Likely (need to confirm this). AgProv (talk) 23:56, 10 February 2013 (GMT)

Huh? --Old Dickens (talk) 02:02, 11 February 2013 (GMT)

Maybe in Thud! Terry just got ahead of himself and promoted her before time? This could be a relict of an earlier draft where Angua had been promoted: it might not have been picked up in the rewrite. Just speculating... AgProv (talk) 08:27, 11 February 2013 (GMT)
