Can you chose to go to Fleet protection group straight out of training?

Reasonably new to the process, I am from Scotland and would very much like to stay in the country if possible. My first choice would obviously be to to go to 45, if this isn't possible would I also like to go to FPG. I was wondering if it is possible to if I wouldn't be able to go to 45 would this be an option? If so how would I do so? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Yes, if you put 43 as your first choice you will get it.

As stated above, a fairly good chance of getting Scotland as a draft at present - assuming Scotland continues to remain part of UK and/or continues to permit nuclear submarines to operate from Faslane - otherwise all bets are off and the South West of England is likely to be the alternative.

Thanks very much, how often are you given the chance to change regiment?

So if I were to be drafted to 43 what would I be doing when first going there? At some point I would also really like to go to 45, so after a couple years at 43 and I felt I wanted to go to 45 how would I do this? Would I pick a specialisation before going?

If going to 43 it would usually be a 2yr draft, you may be pinged before that or get onto your desired specialisation. For example if you wanted to go Anti-Tanks during your course a list will probably go round from higher stating what they require:

40 Cdo x3
42 Cdo x5
45 Cdo x4

As long as those drafts get filled there happy, it’s big boys rules so you usually decide between yourself’s.
