Infantry higher pay band?

#1
Hi im not intrested in opinions as to the infantrys pay. We all know they dont get enough and in a lot of danger most of the time and they do deserve more.
But is it true that all infantry are on the higher pay band. Just some of the booties i work with have been told they do. Royal marines only get it when they get in to certain trades ie VM, medic etc.
Just wanted to know if there is any truth in it.

Yes it's bloody dangerous in Coly town centre after 2300hrs. Especially in the Green Zone where all the kebab shops are!

They always used to be paid higher than an Inf soldier, must have changed since I served them them
Mind you that was a very, very long time ago. :oops:

The Answer is because RM are self sufficient, you will find their trade pay bands mirror the Corps / Regiments of the Army. Inf being no exception:


GENERAL DUTIES

MNE - L
CPL - H
SGT - H
CSGT - L
WO2 - H
WO1 - H

INFANTRY SOLDIER

PTE - L
LCPL - H
CPL - H
SGT - H
CSGT - L
WO2 - H
WO1 - H

Morale of the story, don't believe everything you hear in the Sqn Bar :)
