Female Kings Troop CO

#1
Just seen the article on the first female CO of King's Troop on the Intranet.

Fair play and all that, but the picture doesn't do her any justice.

Hair sticking out, hat not on straight, cap badge not straight, SD baggy..... and as for the one on the right.......

..... Tie not correctly tied, Sam Brown not centred, (do Gunners still wear Sam browns?), Cane/Whip not parrallel to the ground, idle leather-work on nag's brow band,......

Surely more politically correct nonsense - thank God this shower don't do anything important!

Not political correctness at all as far as I can see. She has served in the Troop before which therefore puts her in an ideal position to return as CO and I guess there can't be too many others either qualified or who want to volunteer for the post.

I for one wish her the best of luck for her tour. With the 60th Birthday of the Troop this year and trying to find a new home after the lease for their current barracks runs out she will be busy.

She needs to fire some privs in the direction of her orderly.... or whoever it was that dressed her for this foto.

Did she borrow that kit from a bigger bloke?

Her orderly!! Do lazy officers still have them!!

Fair play to her though.

Always thought the Troop was full of fems till we paid them a visit on a leadership course came away with a new respect

However poilishing a gun for 2 years isnt my idea of soldiering!! lol

I smell a wind-up. White gloves with SD? Perhaps it's another troop thing - like having SD made out of the same material as my British Warm?

Some pretty churlish posts on this thread considering she's on her second row and (knowing her) eminently qualified for the role. Congrats, E!
