  2. Not at my place, there isnt......
  3. We have three at are place.
  4. There are about 7 at our squadron but I think it depends what regiment you join. RAMC etc is more likely to have more women than say RE, it just depends what you want to do.
  5. I believe the Queen did in WW2 (ATS)
  6. Scaleys are choca block - some drill nights i reckon its close to 50:50
  7. H3

    H3 LE

    So that makes the numbers through the doors 2 then :p
  8. I doubt if you could call them all women 8O
  9. In Inf we did have a few but they were discouraged after SDR - a shame really as some of them were pretty good (mainly platoon radio operators).

    I did get to visit a few other units and noticed that Sigs & RLC all had a high proportion.
  10. At our unit (infantry) there is just me! Although there are three at the unit attatched to us. Get quite a few through the door, but very few who stay. :roll:
  11. Aye, my Pl had a female Rad Op who was told she had to recapbadge RAMC or the like when mighty 6/7 folded. Bogged of to be an RN Officer instead.

    Shame, as she was excellent. Fitter than most of the Riflemen.

    When recruiting the last few years I had a lot more women than men through the door. Shame we couldn't take them...
  12. If you're interested in a combat role and are of a lady persuasion, check out the Royal Yeomanry.

    The RY had a female officer deploy as a troop leader in Op TELIC (the one with no number), commanding a load of blokes is a front-line combat role. Not often you see a female troop leader in RTR kit in a war.

    With the RY's re-role as formation CBRN reconnaissance, certain jobs are excluded to women but the vast majority are not.

    Check out the RY website here.
  13. There are quite a few in Movements :D
  14. there are quite a few in the ROYAL ARTILLERY some beter than the men.
