Question about batallion choise

#1
hi, im wanting to apply for the Engineers soon, but there is just one question id like to ask.
In phase 2 do you choose which battalion you'd like to go to? and more specifically can you pick 24 commando or 23 para?
thanks

In the glorious corps of engineers, it's troops and squadrons. NOT the companies and battalions of the infantry.

Young man (woman?), your post gives some apparent truth to the story, also running on here, about the abysmal literacy levels of some of the numpties currently joining our army! However, I note that you refer to yourself as 'Murphy': are you also a racial stereotype?

its my last name, but no irish in me so I don't think it fits the stereotype, and I too agree with my literacy, but i'm not illiterate just along time out of education so its taking a while for it all to come back

In this time you have not had need to either speak or write a coherent sentence?
Explains why he wants to join the army. It must be difficult for young folk today, having tried all possible alternatives, it takes 2.5 years to bring yourself to the only possible alternative.
I have three young lads and I would certainly encourage them to avoid military service if possible. Truth is it's a tough market for youngsters to break into and if they can't do normal, I would be quite happy with Navy or RAF as a career for them.
