    Hi guys another question.

    I have changed my application from RMR to RM.

    I’m wondering what units there are and where they are based and do I have the option to pick which one I want to join after the first 32 weeks off training. Thanks

    The ones you will get after RT are:
    40 Commando, Taunton
    42 Commando, Plymouth
    43 Commando, Faslane
    45 Commando, Arbroath

    I have put down 42 Cdo down, but they have recently re-rolled and I'm not sure if newly passed out recruits go there.

    You can put in for which one you want, but the Corps will put you where they have the most vacancies.

    In addition there is 30 Cdo, Plymouth and Commando Logistic Regt in Chivenor, North Devon, plus some other small specialist units.

    You can go direct to 42 Cdo. Most of my lad's Tp are direct from CTC. I believe it is only J Coy that require previous experience due to role.
