What was the process of recruitment and training in the British Army of the 1870's?

Did the men recruit into a specific Regiment or did or did they join the Army and get assigned to a Regiment? i.e. Did Hook ands Co, join the 24th Regiment or were they assigned to that regiment?

Was the training all done by the Regiments at the Regimental Depots or did all recruits pass through Aldershot for basic training. If everyone did not pass through Aldershot what was the role of Aldershot? Was Aldershot for larger scale training at the Brigade or Divisional levels.

What was the 245th's Regimental Depot at the time of the AZW. Was it in Warwickshire or were they already in Brecon?

I never cease to amae myself with what I don't know.
