Exact limiting Bahadur efficiencies of linear rank tests for scale are derived using a minor extension of the results of Hoadley. Efficiency curves are derived for the linear rank statistics of Mood, Freund and Ansari, and Capon and Klotz relative to the F test for normal scale alternatives when the null hypothesis is that of common normality.
