2Special provisions as to members of home police forces.

(1)Subject to the provisions of this section, any member of a home police force who, whether before or after the commencement of this Act, has engaged, with the consent of the appropriate authority and of the Secretary of State, for a period of overseas service shall during that period be treated as if he were not a member of his home police force ; but, except where a pension, allowance or gratuity becomes payable to him out of moneys provided by Parliament by virtue of regulations made under this Act, he shall be entitled at the end of his period of overseas service to revert to his home police force in the rank in which he was serving immediately before he engaged as aforesaid, and subject to the provisions of any regulations made under section one of this Act, he shall be treated for the purposes of the Police Pensions Act, 1921, and of any scale prescribed by or under the Police Regulations fixing his rate of pay by reference to his length of service, as if he had been serving in that force during that period.

(2)Notwithstanding anything in the last foregoing subsection, if any member of a home police force who has engaged as aforesaid is dismissed from his overseas service by the disciplinary authority established by regulations made under section one of this Act, or is required by that authority to resign as an alternative to dismissal, he shall be deemed for the purposes of the Police Regulations to have committed, as a member of his home police force, an offence against discipline, and may be dealt with under those Regulations accordingly ; and for the purposes of this subsection a certificate of a disciplinary authority established under regulations made under section one of this Act, certifying that any person has been so dismissed or required to resign as aforesaid, shall be evidence of the fact so certified.

(3)Where, whether before or after the commencement of this Act, a person to whom section one of the Police and Firemen (War Service) Act, 1939, applies, being a person who ceased to serve as a constable in order to serve in His Majesty's forces, upon ceasing to serve in those forces has engaged, with the consent of the appropriate authority for his home police force, for a period of overseas service, he shall be deemed for the purposes of the said Act to have resumed service as a constable, and the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to him as if he had engaged for a period of overseas service from his home police force.
