But I've looked, searched everywhere for it, maybe I;m just using the wrong search terms, or looking in the wrong places but I cannot find the answer lol. I'm currently applying for the army, when I say applying I've filled in the online form with all my details, grades, previous employment... etc on it and am waiting to hear back. Whatever the answer to my question is I want to join, but if I do how much time at home do I get? I live i Kent round abouts the middle looking to join as an engineer or infantry possibly, I understand I can be posted anywhere, in the world the army are, but as the army website keeps telling me in your free time you're free to go home do whatever, but how far will home be!? I know the answer has so many variables, but is there any chance say I'll get to spend 3 months a year near Kent or will it all be further away? I'm not too worried about leaving everyone at home, but a few close family members I have spoken to also will want to know more details as I go through the application process and this one is bothering me - To save starting a second thread too, I understand you put down 3 job choices after the barb test? If I put infantry as 3rd would the just bung me in or would they seriously consider the first 2? Thanks!!
