Question for Ministry of Defence

Answered on

29 June 2022

As at 1 April 2022, 9.0% of Regular Trade Trained Army personnel held the Paid Rank of Major or above (6,580 out of 73,310 Regular Trade Trained personnel). These numbers have been rounded to the nearest 10.

These figures are for the Trade Trained Regular Army only and therefore exclude Gurkhas, Full Time Reserve Service, Mobilised Reserves, Army Reserve and all other Reserves, but includes those personnel that have transferred from Gurkha Trained Adult Male (GTAM) to UK Trained Army Personnel (UKTAP). Figures as at 1 April 2022 have been provided, in line with the most recently published Service Personnel Statistics (SPS).
