Hi, can anyone tell me on average what the pay rise is from lance cpl to cpl?
Having a 'discussion' and I need to know who is right!!!
Thanks grin

Depends if its higher or lower pay band!

Rates are all available online.

also depends what 'level' the LCpl is at

pay scales here as swingingcat said and it also depends what level you're on ie. a level 9 Lance jack is paid more than a level 1 sergeant.

x-posts, at least we agree grin

chulita - the scale shows that a lance corporal doesn't earn more than a level 1 sergeant.

sorry, meant top level corporal and sergeant - do forgive me

Nope - still don't get it. A top level corporal is £29,840 and a bottom level sergeant is £30,012

If it was the other way around, there would be absolutely no incentive for being promoted surely?

Ah - unless, with annual increments, a top level sergeant could be higher than bottom level sergeant?

Sounds like I need to pay more attention to someone when he witters...
No idea what level tbh - I'm useless!!! I'll have a look at the link, thanks!

Levels? Spines? See, this is what I ask about, and he looks at me like I'm very stupid and gives me the bare minimum to shhhhshhhh me up!


I'm a lcpl. I go on a cadre, and then I will be a cpl. I get a bit more money.

Am now on a mission to work out what 'level' he is at, what 'spine' he is on, and I may even attempt to find out where I would stand financially if the unthinkable happened. "urm, I think you'll get about £65k" isn't really being armed with facts and figures is it... hmm

What capbadge, what trade? Something else that makes a difference I'm afraid. If he is in a technical or specialist trade he will earn more that someone on a basic pay spine.

Without knowing him it is impossible to say with any certainty. Those pay scales give you an idea though.

Been digging a bit - PWRR, he's mortars - I read that mortars is specialist, then there was something different about infantry, its all very confusing! He's been in about 8 years now, and is away til Sept so I cant ask sad He's not long been cpl, would that mean he's level 1?

L/Cpl upwards in Infantry is higher payband. Specialist trade.

Husband told me all that!
