My bold; you will get the choice of 2PARA or 3PARA.
4PARA are the TA reserves.

1PARA I believe you have you apply for after a good few years of service with either 2 or 3 as 1Para back up Special Forces.

Goodluck with your application, have you headed down the AFCO yet?

It's up to you to decide which Batallion you prefer.

Take a look at these links:

http://www2.army.mod.uk/para/2bn/index.htm

http://www2.army.mod.uk/para/3bn/home/index.htm

Don't base your decision on what barracks you believe are better, make your decision based on the units history and pride. Research into both and make your choice from there.

Hope i could help :)

According to the above link (which took me two minutes to find), P Coy is located at Catterick, North Yorkshire; Para Reg is based in Colchester in Essex.

I doubt the paucity of Scousers will be your main issue when you get to training anyway. Just brush up on your Queen's English first and try not to steal peoples' bootlaces when you get there ;)
