COAS from no country goes to frontline yet majority of them have left these symbolism but that has not in anyway affected the heirarchy in those militaries .The COAS and his top Generals are not going to be in the frontline & fight alongside the jawans
Where their shiny medals and embellishments can make them easy target of enermy snipers.
I belief this is just a part of the symbolism to set the top officers a cut above the common soldiers. To signify militay hierarchy and stuff. And I don't think we can ever take this away from them. Coz they don't seem to get over it
