Ranks

Throughout their secondary education, cadets are awarded ranks as follows:
*Cadet (Private)
*Lance-Corporal
*Corporal
*Sergeant
*Staff Sergeant
*Cadet Leader (in some schools only)

Upon completing their secondary education, ex-cadets may continue their service to the Brigade. Some choose to just return as friends of the school and conduct training for their juniors, while others undergo further formal training to prepare themselves to be appointed as Brigade Officers.

Brigade Officers hold ranks at Corps, Zone or National Headquarters level, and these ranks are further divided into Grades 6 through 1 (Grade 1 being the most senior). The most senior Brigade Officers hold ranks of Super Grade 4 through 1.

Description of Rank Structure

All ranks are worn on the shoulder board. All badges are made of White Metal against a black background. (This list is not exhaustive.)Medical doctors have a red outline around their shoulder boards as shown in the below pictures.
* Denotes such an officer can be promoted to the next higher grade depending on performance. A Deputy to such an officer (or one acting in his capacity) would "normally" be of one grade lower, and an Assistant would be of two.

Awards and Commendations

Officers and Members of the Brigade are eligible for the following Awards and Commendations:

Local Awards

*5 Years First Aid Efficiency Medal (for 5 years' service)
*Commendation Medal (which carries the post nominal letters "CMSJ")


=International (Order) Awards=

*Service Medal of the Order (for 10 years' service)
*Bar to the Service Medal (for each subsequent 5 years' service up to 45 years)

** Knight / Dame of Grace "(K.St.J. or D.St.J.), note that this does not entitle the holder to Sir "
* Life-Saving Medal of the Order (in Gold, Silver or Bronze) - very rare

The grades of the Order are numbered 1 through 6, however this is not to be confused with the grading of Brigade Officers.

The highest grade in the Order, G.C.St.J. is limited only to the Great Officers of the Order and 21 other individuals. The lowest grade in the Order, Esq.St.J. is for Personal Esquires for K.St.J. and above who probably play a role similar to that of an Aide-de-Camp.

The allotment is as follows: 2 Personal Esquires for Knights of Justice and above, and 1 Personal Esquire for Knights of Grace. No Personal Esquires have been appointed in Singapore.
