Reading the following (rather good) blog: Lady_Humphrey on Army Wives Prompted me to ask myself: What are the combat indicators to identifying an Army Officer's Wife? I had in my mind: [align=center]Green Wellies Barbour Body Warmer (Chinese Fighting Jacket style) Black Lab Pearl Necklace (steady...!) Alice Band[/align] Now... I know the 'Chinese Fighting Jacket' has been replaced by the sleeveless 'North Face' puffa-thing. Are there any other updates to the traditional image now that they: earn more than us, are more organised, generally better educated; and more likely to chest prod the CO and less keen on Coffee Mornings than their 'predecessors'?
