  • Irish Artillery Ranks

    What is the Corporal rank in the Artillery in the Irish Army?In Australia we have followed the british system where a corporal is a Bombadier,Lance Bombadier and private is a Gunner.There are no ex Gunners in the world as there are no ex Popes.
    I have been busted here from Bombadier to recruit.....bugga!!!!!

      Yep Corporal, only Pte's have Different names for their ranks in the Irish DF.

      Gunner = Artillery/Air Defence
      Trooper = Cavalry
      Signalman/signalwoman = CIS
      Airman/Airwoman
      Seaman/Seawoman

      Of Course Unit Titles in Rank Markings Change aswell as In
      Battery Sgt. instead of Company Sgt.
      Regimental Qutermaster Sergeant insted of Bn QMS
      Flight Quatermaster Sergeant in the Air Corps etc etc.

      Are Cav the Same i.e. Squadron Quatermaster Sergeant??

        Trooper is the rank of Armour and Cavalry and SASR and they are Squadrons,hence SQMS etc.As Armour is in a Regiment we have RQMS and RSM,Squadrons have SSMs.

            Sorry,Signalman/woman.Airman/woman and Seaman/woman.It looks like they are trying to intergrate females into Infantry Battalions etc,I don't like this idea as a bloke will defend a female and forget his real duty.

              I knew that was the case in foreign armies hanno, that question was directed at out own Cav members here.

              We only have 1 Armd Sqn. 5 tanks in total (I may be wrong)

                Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil...prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

                              As an artillery Gunner myself I feel I should contribute to this thread :D but I think all John P Hannon's questions have been answered so this really has no purpose anymore.

                              So I think I'll keep it alive for now by asking: are there any other units that have messed up ranking systems. i.e. they call the sargents 'sir' ect. ???
