You will go to Bassingbourne, Cambs...close to 39 Engr Regt and 33 EOD Regt. Great if you love Cambridgeshire, everyone will then (artisan, mech, emw) will go to Chatham, where you will do trade, learn real Spr history - life gravitates around Chatham - then go to your unit (only to return to Chatham -if you are one of Gods tradesmen!).
Surely from 'Bas' as a spr he will be of to Gib to do Knockering and Knots and stuff, before going to Chatham to learn the real side of being an engineer. If he is really lucky he might get near a digger.
