English translation:(Chief) Corporal
Explanation:
APS stands for "Appuntato scelto". Seehttps://forum.grnet.it/avanzamento-a-carica-e-qualifica-spec...

The equivalent rank in the UK would be "Chief Corporal" according to this site: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rank_insignia_of_the_Guardia_d...

I just noticed that there is a similar entry in KudoZ: https://www.proz.com/kudoz/italian-to-english/law-patents/55...
They translate it as "Lance Corporal"
