    Not sure it works like that, but Billy Mott may have a good claim to the position.

    BCFC SAM - came across that but i heard of a rank called conductor in the rlc which is meant to be higher than everyone else

    I was carted about on numerous of the old 'white elephant' busses and never came across one of those? However if he's the man who originated the "on the bus off the bus" routine then his power is indeeed imense and all reaching!

    That will probably do it. Can't be Billy Mott or any Conductor chappy as they are Warrant Officers, not Senior NCOs.

    They don't 'Conduct' anything, buses electricity or bands.

    This argument has had tons of threads and the consensus has always been GSM LonDist or Academy Sergeant Major RMA Sandhurst.

    I reckon it's GSM Londist myself.

    Edited to add : Of course pedants will say that the senior NCO is a Staff Sergeant but I thnk the OP means highest person sans commission.

    I know Stacker, the argument has been going on for years hasn't it?

    I have always thought of AcSM and GSM Londist because of their high profile appointments.

    I'm going GSM Londist because of the new badge that HM just gave him, and because it is a unique appointment.

    Conductors probably have de jure seniority but I reckon GSM Londist has the de facto gig.
