Hello Pavel,

Perhaps the same as we had in our forces. I also had a temporary rank for a while in the RNethAF, what meant that I was allowed to wear the distinguishes marks on the uniform, could visit the mess connected to the rank.............but not one penny more on the pay-roll at the end of the month !!

Regards - Henk.

Yesssssssss!

That is the right meaning, thanks Hank.

And what about time? How long could you be in temporary rank?

Regards

Pavel

Hi Pavel,

Depends on what the reason was for a temp. rank.

* to proof your specialization (some months)

* to proof your leadership (some months)

* to carry out a job and a higher rank involved to this job (for the period you had to fulfil this job).

Regards - Henk.
