Corporal first class
Corporal first class ("CFC") is the highest enlistee rank in the Singapore Armed Forces, ranking just above corporal and below third sergeant. It is awarded to well-performing corporals at the top tier of their cohorts who have held the rank for at least six months and is by recommendation only to the formation or division HQ. CFCs may be given higher appointments or other equivalent responsibilities.
The rank was introduced on 1 September 1988. At that time the CFC rank insignia was indicated by the usual two stripes on the arm, but with a horizontal bar above the two stripes. Reintroduced in 2008, the CFC rank insignia now is an additional arc on the top compared to corporal rank insignia.
