Joining the local regiment

Hello all,

Just wondering if it is a good idea to join my local regiment after Sandhurst, and would i get preferential treatment from the regiment for doing so.
Absolutely you would. You'll have everything you want just for being local. In fact, since you're local, I should imagine you'll get use of the CO's car and driver....
Local regiment? We still have those?

Serious answer coming up: probably if you were from Yorkshire, Wales, Scotland or Ireland since those regiments have strong local identity. Possibly anywhere else but I should imagine they would select on merit and only use location as an absolute tie-breaker; they do move around battalions from time to time.
I suppose i should have called "my local regiment" as the regiment that recruits ORs from my area

Thanks for the reply but sadly i am not from those areas
