You could be posted pretty much anywhere as a B mech.

Not as wide for an A mech, but still far too many options to list.

Oh, except to the Light Infantry, as they travel 'light' and don't require vehicles.

Postings - Any regiment in the British army.

Basic - Chin up, its only 14 weeks, things get easier after.

Bordon - Boredom, Booze and Fruit Machines.

Showing your age there!

The Rifles use a range of vehicles from WARRIOR down to LR, but then even their predecessors the Light Infantry did as well in all Bn roles.

GO TO GERMANY.and have some fun before we all get withdrawn from there, not exactly what it used to be like but still a good scream on the lash

You could put this in as a preference but I'm guessing that it is so you are close to home? I know loads of people that have done this but you should get out and enjoy the world a bit first. Give Germany a go, if the rumours are to be believed we are leaving here soon so take the opportunity while you can. You will be posted every 2 years as a class 3/2 I believe then every 3 years as a class 1 so you can always aim off to go nearer home later on.

Thanks for that. I was taking the pish. I know exactly what the Rifles do since I spent quite some time in the Army with them.

Feck that mate just get yourself to Germany for as much fun as you can before it's all over. You can get all traditional and sentimental later on in your career.
