LSA for rejoiners?

Hi,

Does anybody know what the crack is for rejoiners with LSA? Do you have to start building it up again or do you pick up where you left off?

Cheers

In my offer letter which I received after permission to process I was told that I would keep my rank, job role, pay scale but LSA goes back to zero. No idea why they would take sea days off us but hey ho.

Not sure if we can argue it to try and get them back but worth an ask I guess

I've done a bit of reading and it looks like I will be entitled to LSA.

Next question.

Will the time (or some of it) spent at BRNC count as 'Qualifying Separation' despite BRNC being the Duty Station? I figured it might because for much of Dartmouth you are confined to camp and cannot return home at the weekends.
Any ideas?

I doubt it; put it this way - none of my Junior Officers have LSA days from BRNC...

JSP says: QS does not start to accrue for new entrant officers until completion of initial officer training at the appropriate single Service officer training college BRNC, RMAS or RAF College Cranwell.
But Harry Von, aren't you a re-entrant?

Yeah square rib, I am re-entrant so i will be entitled LSA from day one. I was just curious as to whether or not time spent at Dartmouth (e.g. the first 10 weeks were youre not allowed off camp) will give contribute to LSA.

Normal rules apply; it's your Duty Station and you don't get LSA. As a re-entrant you may differ from the new entrant officers and qualify for LSA when you are away for 7 days, or at sea (such as during ISA), but it really should be detailed in your offer letter as a re-entrant?
