Yes - and some really bad ones.

Why don't you:

1. Use the search function, there are many threads related to the subject and/or

2. Add some detail to your post about you and what you might like to do (or more specifically not do) to avoid the rest of us the bother of suggesting units that wouldn't suit you.

fair one. want a challenge and to pass a hard course if possible. also want a unit that gets regular tours
Ok, that narrows it down a lot.

Infantry? Specialist trade?

Also consider that "gets regular tours" is going to rapidly become a thing of the past - you may have already missed the boat.

I see from other psosts that you are in the RMR. Why not just stick with them in London ?

Chances are mate you've missed the opportunity to do a tour because as far as I'm aware the there aren't any tours for TA (Infantry) units what with Afghanistan wrapping up. However it's only a matter of time till we end up in some other arm pit shithole.

In terms of units well there's a good number of different badges in the London Regiment which I believe encompasses:

.London Scottish
.London Irish
.London Fusiliers
.Princess Of Wales Royal Regiment (PWRR)

Special Forces Signals (Reserve) - British Army Website
Special Forces Signals (Reserve).

Mission

63(SAS) Signal Squadron (Reserve) provides the Military Reserve Communications and Information Systems capability required to enable UK Special Forces Reserve Operations in support of the Governments Foreign Security and Defence Policies.

Role

The role of 63 (SAS) Signal Squadron (Reserve) is to provide:
•Individual and collective augmentation to the Regular Communications and Information Systems Component of UK Special Forces.
•Communications and Information Systems support to the Reserve Component of UK Special Forces on exercises and operations.

History

63(SAS) Signal Squadron (Reserve) was formed in 1967 from elements of 41 Signal Regt, 63 Signal Regt, 327 Signal Sqn, and 115 Field Sqn RE. From its inception the Squadron has provided support to 21 and 23 SAS (R), although the role and geographic spread of the Squadron has expanded over time and now has posts throughout the UK.

Special Forces Communicator (Reserve) Capability

SFC(R) operations require the skill sets and equipment to operate beyond the range and capability of conventional forces. They require sufficient endurance, field craft, surveillance, communications, mobility and 'life skills' to work in isolation, whilst remaining in sync with multi agency effect across the spectrum of conflict.

Operations

Whilst the MOD does not comment on the specifics of Special Forces operations, 63 (SAS) Signal Squadron (Reserve) have made a significant contribution to recent operational deployments.
