Other ranks[edit]

Non-commissioned officers (NCO) are refer to as Saya (ဆရာ, lit.'teacher') by both enlisted men and officers. For example, Warrant officers, Regimental sergeant majors and Company sergeant major are referred to as Bo Lay (ဗိုလ်လေး, lit.'sub-captain'), Sergeant are referred to as Saya and Corporal/Lance Corporal as Saya Lay (ဆရာလေး, lit.'little teacher'). These unofficial ranks are in used throughout the daily life of all branches of Myanmar Armed Forces. NCO's within Myanmar Armed Forces are usually seasoned veteran soldiers with wide-ranging experience of the battlefield, thus both officers and enlisted men refer to them as "teacher" out of respect as well as affection.[citation needed]
