General Commanding Military Forces

At Album 2000 [pay00] - General Commanding Military Forces (2:3) - National flag with two black sabres in saltire in canton and with a black anchor in fly top corner. I'm not quite sure what this title would encompass - maybe a non-naval flag officer commanding joint service forces?

Military Authorities Flag

At Album 2000 [pay00] - The note to the figure of General Commanding Military Forces explains that similar flag without anchor is used by Military Authorities. Very similar flag differing only silightly in the shape of the sabres, but probably representing just the same flag) is reported by Jaume Olle' as Military Commanders Flag.  Would that be of the general level, or maybe lower, say commanders of brigades or so, no matter what rank they hold?
