2011-2012 British Pay Award Chart

2011-2012 United Kingdom Rank - Rating & Pay Chart

The following charts for officer and enlisted basic pay is based on an approved increase of £250 for all members who's 2010 pay was £21,000 or less. The raise is based on the latest Armed Forces' Pay Review Body (AFPRB) recommendations and will be implemented in full from 1 April 2011. Although the Operational Allowance has also been doubled to £5,281 for those on a six-month tour, no additional base pay raise will be realized for the remainder of the armed forces.

British military pay charts are for the Royal Navy (RN), Royal Marines (RM), British Army (BA), Royal Air Force (RAF) and Royal Irish Regiment (RIR).

NOTE: Pay charts reflect an annual pay rate in British Pounds (£).
