1st Female Soldier Killed in Iraq

Does it really matter whether she was the 1st or the 2nd? The fact is her death is a sad loss. RIP.
R.I.P thoughts are with loved ones.
Comfort to her family and loved ones. RIP.
Stand Down, you will be remembered. My sympathy to the family and friends

Technically the first was an Officer, being a Flt Lt (RAF), but as has been said it is still just as sad.


No. I sem to recall the first was a RMP Sgt about 18 months ago. (Stating the obvious but the Flt Lt = RAF.)

Whatever they were all somebody's daughter / wife / partner or friend.
RMP lass not result of enemy action.

RAF Flt Lt , therefore, servicewoman not a soldier.

Sharron was technically the first female soldier to be KIA.

Technicalities and semantics that matter not in these tragedies.

God rest all their souls.
