My mate took a gap year between his first and second year and went to Northern Ireland. He and I then took a gap year after uni before we got "proper" jobs and went away again. It is easy to do, its great fun and Unis are normally pretty cool with it!

Can't help you on the advice as I haven't done it, although I did look into it before joining the TA (but got offered a postgrad I couldn't refuse and didn't take a gap year as a result). Have a look at this web page for some info on the gap year organised by 4 Para. It's booked up for this year's intake, but worth a look anyway.
