FANY at the weekend?

#1
Hi all,

Been told that during a high profile W/E coming up I may well have to cook for some FANY's.

Now I know about who they are and what they do.

"I was told they were old and over weight"

That I do not believe, Can someone enlighten me? Do I need to get my best pressed 95 out and polish my S10? :wink:

Poppy is a FANY.

'Nuff said.
Not sure what Snow White was implying there, (???)

take it from me Battery Tea Boy....Poppy is an absolute 100% Babe (not the pig variety I hasten to add) ...and I hear she's lost the German Helmet hair style..... :cry: I thought she looked sufficiently severe with that!

Anyway, enjoy your FANY hunt, and be sure to post results next week.....if they haven't all suffered from food poisoning that is.... :twisted:

They're the Women's Institute of the Army.

Slightly posh ladies (well, the ones I've met so far have been), they're not medics as such, although FANY stands for First Aid Nursing Yeomanry.

I've usually seen them on competitions, where they provide staff to do the scoring and the comms.

Just had a look at the website provided.

Most of them look passed their "golden years"

mental note :- ensure BFAT aide memoir goes in top left pocket, long with combi-tool, pen, compass, notebook.......

There are far too many references to "FANY HQ" to remain silent!!!!

:lol:
What about the book 'The FANY in peace and war' :D :D :D

Sounds like a great read.......


p.s. They don't appear to have ranks and their's no mention of pay??

Oh yes: in my first unit after I left the regular Army we were virtually co-located with the FANY, and we did a lot of scoring :D

FANY are a great organization. Poppy is a top gal and all round good egg. FANY web site well worth a visit. As a common or garden Northern Gal I can only aspire to being a FANY. The web site is well worth a visit.

Not everything in this world is about rumpy pumpy you know guys. No wait, scratch that, sorry, yes, it is!

A bit like QA's but with slightly bigger ARRSES :lol:

I know nobody is like the QA's

SOE used to badge many of their female agents FANYs - eg the fictional Charlotte Gray

Happy now Pops? :wink: I'm still not clear on what they actually do other than molest you at parties etc :lol:
