    Anything that was worth a general court martial...In the British/Canadian army, there were four types of courts martial. Only two of them - the general court martial (GCM) and the field general court martial (FGCM) - were invested with the authority to sanction the death penalty. The district court martial and the regimental court martial tried minor offences and could only impose limited terms of punishment that excluded the death penalty.
