I'm not sure if anyone here will be able to help but it's worth a try. I got posted on an E2 post in 2005 and was given acting rank of L/Cpl, so I am getting paid in that rank, and have being given the pay rise for this rank each year. My problem is this. I've now held this acting rank for 4 years and I have being told a number of different things, one being that after 2 years I should have recieved substancive rank and the other being that because I'm Infantry its different rules and that on my return to my unit I have to revert back to my former rank. I've approached my RAO and RAWO about this a few times and each time I have being told something different. Can anyone please shed some light on this for me?
