Transferring from one role to another

Hi all,
Once a pilot has been drafted to a specific OCU, is there any room later on for a transfer to another squadron which operates a different role. For example could someone drafted to pinger merlin later transfer to commando merlin, or vice versa.

Thanks.

Believe so. Had a couple of pilots / flight commander’s who were trained as seaking but ended up as lynx aircrew.
It could be different now though.

Pinger to junglie unusual. And vv. Not unheard of. However rare if only for the costs involved. More likely pinger OR junglie to wildcat. Ie ships flights. Exceptions have been “ bagger “ aew pilots quite a few of whom ( not all by any means ) were from the Cdo squadrons.
Of course if you go down the instructional route more options open up.
And rotary to fixed wing ( as a lot of us have done, also not impossible. ). Some guys spend their whole lives on one aircraft type and one specialty and are perhaps the better for it.
