The current number of officers who have been commissioned from the ranks in the naval service and Army are as set out in the following table:
|Service||As at||Number commissioned from the ranks||Proportion of officer corps (%)|
|Naval service||1 April 2013||840||14|
|Army||1 July 2013||2,610||20|
Information on the number of currently serving RAF officers, who have previously served in the other ranks (OR) could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, since April 2010 some 40 OR have been commissioned each year, and this represents 0.14% of the annual opening OR total.
All numbers are rounded to the nearest 10; numbers ending in five have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.
