The highest rank is Field Marshal, currently held by Queen Elizabeth's husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. It is a purely ceremonial role. Following that is the rank of General which is held by the Chief of the Defence Force (a role that rotates through the heads of the three services) and then Lieutenant General. Therefore if the current Chief of the Defence Force is from the Army then the highest Army rank is General, otherwise it is Lieutenant General.
