Here in Australia, we have the LCPL and LBDR ranks w/ one hook. Then CPL, SGT, (SSGT was removed about 8 yrs ago), then WO2 and WO1. Officer rank is in pips of the British system.
Its good to remain in tradition here, and I love it. It gives Army a distinction all in its own, as each Service has its own rank structure (RAAF and RAN).
I belive that installing the LCPL back in the Cdn system would cause the whole system to be overhauled, and hence $$$$$.
LCPL/LBDR here in Australia is = to CPL in the CF system. CPL/BDR here is = to the Cdn MCPL/MBDR.
CPL/BDR‘s here take an intense course similar to the old CLC JLC ISCC types back in Canada which I do believe were still ongoing when I left the CF in 1995.
Here CPL/BDR‘s are section commanders, and LCPL/LBDR‘s are 2 I/C‘s. SGT‘s are PL SGT‘s, etc.
In Corps such as Engr‘s Sigs, and Arty, for a trg‘d PTE they use SPR, SIG,and GNR.
