I think you can ask to go to which unit you want after training but if another unit needs more people you would be sent there

I want to go to 40, its only 25 mins away from me and the people I have met who have served there say its by far the best, but then I suppose you would say that if you were there.

Aren't 45 better at arctic training or something?
I'm sure I heard that somewhere,
but if that's true surely the other 2 have to have something they're better at.

Every unit does the same standard arctic training, the difference may be because 45 is in scotland so its colder and they have easier and more regular access to snow.

Well I'd like to join 45 for no other reason than its about 1.5hrs away from Edinburgh so if I am free on weekends I can drive home to the wife :)

42, plymouth! Pubs! And less of a pain to travel about the place and more chance to rent a place off base when the time comes.

40, for all the same reasons. There are some good places in Taunton, and its only 40 mins drive from Bristol and Exeter.
