Category: Australian Army Generals

Categories: Generals | Australian Army

The senior, or general, ranks in the Australian Army are (in descending order):

  • Field Marshal - the current holder of the rank of Field Marshal, in an honorary and ceremonial capacity, is HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, prince-consort to the Queen of Australia, Her Majesty Elizabeth II.
  • General - is the second-highest rank, and the highest active rank, of the Australian Army and considered a four-star rank. The rank of general is held when an army officer is appointed Chief of the Defence Force.
  • Lieutenant General - is considered a three-star rank and is held by the Chief of Army, and also when an army officer holds the position of Vice Chief of the Defence Force, the Chief of Joint Operations, or the Chief of Capability Development.
  • Major General - is considered to be equivalent to a two-star rank. A Major General commands a division or the equivalent.

From 1901 to 1921 the rank of Brigadier General was included in the group, but since has (with the name change to Brigadier) been included with the field officer ranks of Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel.
