Corporal - Singapore


Corporals (CPL) in the Singapore Armed Forces lies between Lance Corporal and Corporal First Class. It is a rank most commonly held by Full Time National Servicemen with at least an A Level Certification or Polytechnic Diploma. The rank insignia for a corporal is two chevrons pointing downward with an arc on top.

In the past, the SAF followed the British model, and Corporals were non-commissioned officers often holding the appointment of section leader. Today, a corporal is not a Specialist (NCO-equivalent), and holds no command authority, although they may be given higher responsibilities such as appointment as a section 2IC, or 2nd-in-command

In the Singapore Police Force, Singapore Civil Defence Force, Singapore Prison Service and Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, a Corporal is a rank below Sergeant. The rank is also used in uniformed groups for students such as National Police Cadet Corps(NPCC), National Cadet Corps(NCC) and National Civil Defence Cadet Corps(NCDCC).
