Hi,

Does anyone know the rate of pay for a private in the cavalry in 1915? I know it was more than an infantryman got.

Hi Paulmag

Hope you're still checking this post.

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but, according to Army Form B.218P His Majesty's Army: Weekly Rates Of Pay Of Private Soldiers In The Regular Army And Special Reserve (15th June 1915), Cavalry of the Line drew 8/2 on enlistment and 9/11 to 11/8 after 2 years service. By way of comparison, Infantry of the Line drew 7/- on enlistment and 8/9 to 10/6 after 2 years service.

Under the National Insurance Act, a deduction of 1 1/2 d a week was made from a soldier's pay.

Kind regards

Teresa

Found this in a mans file
It mentions the rate of pay in the A.S.C.
Might be of some use to someone.
