Três Corações / MG – On August 10, 2019, the NCO Academy held the Sergeant Max Wolf Filho Saber Award Parade. At this Parade, for the first time in the Brazilian Army, the Bayonet Saber Rifle Mauser 1908 was awarded to the students of the 2018/19 NCO Training Course. The Saber resembles that one worn by Sergeant Max Wolf Filho during the 1930 and 1932 Revolutions and resembles that worn in the NCO Academy gala uniform in 1894.
