Direct entry

Ahoy shipmates. As a CPO in the Weymouth Sea Cadets (I'm 22) would I get a direct entry as a Chief in the RFA or Royal Navy, keeping my well earned rank, and would that be a problem for anyone who has been in a long time and might be older than me?
Cheers Benny

Well, your PerSec is total bollix for a start.

As you are only a Sea cadet, I won't point out the 3 or 4 obvious give-aways.

For a start it is not Rank it is a Rate.
However i would imagine that with all your experience youmay well be advised to apply for the position of Captain of the Heads!

Had to check this wasn't in lil's :D

Sure why not? But your persec is terrible. What is your specialisation in the Sea Cadets? Is Cook/Steward still a thing? I'm sure you'd be a fav for restocking the snacks in the WO & SRs mess.
