ASC Rates of Pay

Is it the case that those who served with the ASC were paid more than the other ranks in the infantry? If so by how much and why was this?

Rather a general question, rates varied in many corps because of varying proficiencies, rank and acting ranks. I think you will find they were on a a par when comparing like for like.

They were paid more than infantry of the line regiments, but less than others. From the 1914 Pay Warrant the daily pay for Sgt Majors was:

- Cavalry of the line 5s 4d

- RHA 6s

- RFA and RGA 5s 10d

- RE 6s

- RFC (military wing) 9s

- foot guards 5s 2d

- infantry of the line 5s

- ASC 5s 6d

- RAMC 5s 6d

- AVC 5s 4d

- AOC 5s 6d
