The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
a female gunner?,not just the sun which has crap writers then.
Looked female to me with a little blonde bobble poking out of the back of her lid?
RAF training for closer quarters combat.....
...well, you should have seen the scrum around the brunch counter on a weekend at RAF Brampton. Not a pretty sight.
Must resist the urge!
Can't do it, must be one of those himshes as part of the RAF gender tree hugging crap
Insert any previous remark regarding, protecting the naffi and short range desert group.
Feel better now.
Interesting in this day and age we can't just have one centre of excellence?
I don't like the use of the word 'operators', it sounds all a bit Andy McNabb to me.
Because we cant have the Army getting all shouty at the the genteel RAF types.
It's too sensible a proposition having the one training centre when more money can be spent building a whole new one and staffing it.
Been through the LLUST house at Whinny Hill - Quite an interesting bit of kit, especially the debrief afterwards.
The Navy PR has****ed up here methinks... surely it should be Army, RAF and RM?
Why not? Females aren't allowed on ops where deliberate contact with the enemy is the aim; nothing in that statement has anything to do with rocks!
In the dark recesses of my mind did I read a few years ago the the yanks were going to stop close quarters training or was it us?
We had female "gunners" but they were not employed in a gunners role. They did the training but were used as female searchers, translators and in a liason role.
So I guess its possible in this story, although I would be amazed if she was ever deployed in a gunners role. ...in fact, no I would not, because it would not happen.
I saw ALOT of chicks in the "gunner's role", eating ice creams at the EFI.
Sums it up pretty well I think.
