    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.

    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.
