local snco rank

No, I'm sure there's no way its garunteed regardless of time frame. To get acting you should meet plenty of qualification criteria, usually that for substantive promotion, so the fact of local rank even over long periods shouldn't somehow garuntee acting or indeed substantive rank.

No I know a few people who held local Sgt for over a year then MCM posted them as Cpl's. One medic held his for two years and posted as a Cpl and totally fcuked his promotion up. Obviosly severe management issues if some one is doing a job as a Sgt they should be treated better and the acting and substansive should follow soon after.

No, but it's a very worthy aim.

Unless, of course, you happen to be in the Local Rank at the six month mark and there is still a need for that slot to be filled - in which case you'd suddenly become subordinate to the bloke who minutes earlier had been your subordinate.

I'm sure I was told when I was a youngster that if acting/local/pay of higher rank was granted, then after 6 months in the job you were either promoted or moved on in your substansive rank. Is this not the case?

No like I said have known plenty who went past 1-2 years then still never got promoted.

Certainly should be if you are acting, but not POHR or local.

Example: lad in my last unit volenteered to work in the families office, so was subsquently given local Sgt status.

Came to loads of mess functions etc,etc.

18 Months later has just been posted to another unit on the same camp as a full screw.

Embarrasing? Absofcukingloutly.

Wasn't when I did it for a little over 12 months (local Sgt with pay of higher rank).

I don't understand how just by virtue of being in a locally granted rank, which a CO can authorise without much paper work, you could somehow avoid the rigours of selection on a board at Glasgow, simply by sitting in that local rank for 6 months and a day! It can't be right!

POHR is granted for up to 6 months at a time. After that it has to be applied for by CO to higher command.

I was made local L/Cpl for 30 days then became acting for 4 years but was then posted in my substansive rank as Cfn as I was taking my demob, on re-enlisting I was taken back as a substansive L/Cpl. So don't ask me how it works.
