The Chaplain in Chief comes in at £100K
24 September, 2020
• GOOD Lord! The Battle of Britain 80th anniversary revealed that an Air Vice-Marshal is Chaplain in Chief (Nearer, My God, to Thee perhaps), the same rank held when, in 1980, the Royal Air Force had three times as many personnel.
He is paid £100,000; more than the Archbishop of Canterbury. Starting at £49,000, nearly 250 armed forces’ chaplains’ pay is £12million annually. The moral component of fighting power, not just a matter for chaplains, comes dear.
