Paymaster of the Forces

The Paymaster of the Forces was a British government position. It was occasionally a cabinet-level post in the 18th and early 19th centuries, and many future prime ministers served as Paymaster. The office was responsible for part of the financing of the army. It was abolished in 1836.
