Comparison of pay

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whilst reading my copy of Stern (a German weekly magazine) my attention was attracted to rates of pay for various trades/jobs in Germany. I was a bit gobsmacked to see how much your Bundesmarine partners in crime don't earn. A Kapitänleutnant (Lt Cdr) as captain of a mine sweeper gets an average of € 3188 a month (national average is about € 3100.00) plus € 184 a month divers pay and € 35.00 per day at sea.
    A Stabsbootsman (somewhere between PO and Chief) gets € 2632 a month.
    Not a lot really, how does the RN compare?

    Don't know, the UK Armed Forces get paid I £. This site should be an EU free zone :dwarf: :dwarf:
  3. On base salary that's about a third lower then here.

    A Lt Cdr I/C MCM would be about four or five years in as a Lt Cdr, needn't be a diver. So just equate that to a Sqn Ldr salary at the same seniority.
