Ok so i'm hoping to join up very soon but regiments seem to confuse me a bit. I'm from Sunderland and I'm under the impression that the Fusiliers are my local regiment (searching the internet, and it was the Fusiliers who would come visit the school whenever the Army was involved). But when i look at where they're stationed they don't seem to be anywhere near us except their TA regiment in Durham. So the closest I can see is the 1 Lancs at Catterick, which is only an hours drive away. Now I know part of the army is disappearing off and becoming your own person, but I don't want to be too far from Family/girlfriend. So where do I stand on getting myself somewhere close to home when I sign up? (hoping you guys will be more help than a potentially lying recruiter).
