Can you chose your Squadron?

Just a quick question for you all. I hope to join a Formation Recce reg post Sandhurst and was wondering what the standard practice is for placement within the regiment. Are you allowed to choose your squadron (and hence role) or are you placed?

Many thanks for replies.
Thanks, so is there the opportunity to move round the regiment (well to one of the other two squadrons probably) later or if you are placed is that then it?
You will be put into a Sqn according to the needs of the Regt at the time. In an FR Regt (now known as a BRR), you will almost certainly start as a sabre troop (SCIMITAR) leader within one of the tracked sabre Sqns, before subsequent jobs as either a support/GW Tp Ldr (again in a tracked sabre Sqn), BRF Tp Ldr, Surv Tp Ldr, OC TACP, etc.
