Joining RNR Diving Specialty

#1
I am presently looking to join the RNR, and am interested in the diving specialty. I already have Advanced Open Water Qualifications and various other things too, which I have held for a number of years, hence the interest.

Anyway, most documentation seems confusing, I have all but discovered that entry is as a regular reservist with a transfer to diving specialty later, which is understandable. My question though, it seems regular entry can be either as an rating or officer, so my question;

Is there a difference in the diver specialty if you enter through the rating or officer route? in other words what is the advantage of doing the extra work to join as an officer?

Thanks

Not sure how the RNR puts this into practice, but in layman's terms, RN Rating Divers do the day to day underwater stuff whilst the MCDOs are "Diving Supervisors" on the surface.

Do the supervisors still get issued with a similar personal mirror to RN divers or do they have to purchase their own from Gieves?
