Rincewind said:Actual text book answer is:
as long as there is not a greater than 4 year break of service you may enter the corps at an equal rate/rank to that of your service rate/rank where applicable, under the discression of your (SCC) commanding officer and District Officer.
Where it is felt nessesary, you may be steered towards Officer Selection Boards as an alternative.
And ther may be examples of where the Break in service can be longer
Example, we haven an ex Chief Stoker RN, been out 12 years and he has been allowed in as a CPO with invitation to attend OSB

The ASO Weapons for Southern Area is a Cdr in the RNR and was a PPO in the SCC, eventually after refusing to go further as a Snr Rate the SCC Caved and handed him Lt (SCC) rank.
Depends on circumstances but i would argue that as the SCC Ranks are RNR then as an officer in the RNR you should be entitled to wear your RNR uniform, be treated like an officer and wait for someone sensible to catch you up with the paperwork.
