Check out the link above to the navy's site which gives you quite a lot of info on the brigade and units.
As for differences between them...very little nowadays just the locations!

Basically mate there are no differences between the commandos. They can all deploy to the same places and do the same jobs. However, while I was at 42 I reckon phys wise both 45 and 40 had an edge on us (especially my unfit company!) However, that was just the impression I got at the time, So no quoting me on that!

There is no diffrence between the units, the only diffrences are geographic ( running round 42 is honking because which ever way you go out of the camp there is some gopping feature to climb, 45 and 40 are mostly flat areas)
