"Check it out, corporal. We'll cover you."
―An OOM command battle droid, to a security droid corporal[src]

Corporal was a military rank, usually in army units.[5] It was usually higher than a private or trooper, and lower than a sergeant.[source?]

The Trade Federation Droid Army used the rank of corporal. One security battle droid held the rank, and this droid was destroyed by Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.[8]

Comet[5] and Echo were both clone troopers who held the rank of corporal, and so they were both Clone Corporals.[6]

Though Meebur Gascon's rank in the Grand Army of the Republic was colonel, WAC-47 repeatedly referred to him as "corporal." Later, however, as the two came to respect each other, Gascon gave WAC a promotion to the title of corporal.[7]

During his time as an infantryman, Han Solo served as a Corporal in the 224th Imperial Armored Division.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

In the real world, the rank of corporal is generally a relatively junior NCO grade.

In the British Household Cavalry however, all NCOs and warrant officers use variations on the rank of corporal.
