Before the reform of the Baustralian Armed Forces, the current ranks of staff sergeant and warrant officer were three separate classes of warrant officers. Following the Canadian structure, the ranks after sergeant were Warrant officer, Master warrant officer, and Chief warrant officer. In between the ranks of corporal and sergeant was an appointment given its own paygrade, Master corporal.
