resign, relinquish, retire

if you retire you have a chance to get it back....

the other two don't.
I don't think that's 100% accurate. I believe that those that have retired, at whatever age, from the services (certainly the RN) still hold the Queen's Commission, however if they go to work for a foreign government they must inform NavSec (or equiv) and relinquish their commission. When they return to the UK they can reapply to have their commission reinstated.

Sadly, there is no such thing as a RO any more; they are civil servants at grade d, or C and any tosser can apply for such posts, not just Military tossers. Even gopwos can apply!
