If the Army allow you to transfer whilst still serving, even if you are an Army Officer, you would at least undergo POC before being considered for transfer as a Senior Corps Commission candidate, to the best of my knowledge. It's worth giving the Personnel selecion officers a ring in Lympstone on that one as it's not at all straightforward. (Natch).
The issue with the Senior Corps Commission is that so far as I'm aware, you would be employed in the support role rather than as a Troop Commander. Again you'd need to verify this with the Area Careers Liaison Officer at your nearest AFCO and you'd be advised to face East when putting forward your case to the Army in the hope they permit an "in-service" transfer. If you're successful, it's probably worth giving the Pope a bell to say "ta" & lay first claim to a miracle.
The best thing to do is call the 08456 07 55 55 advice line as it's definitely a specialist area in which the decisions are dictated by the casting of chicken bones from the Ju-ju bag of a little known GP in Haiti.
Good luck.Always verify any advice at your nearest AFCO

Re: Young Officer Ages
Much appreciated Ninja. I'll pay the local AFCO a visit this week. To be honest, the transfer to Corps as a grav then SCC route doesn't sound too bad. Cheers.
