First female gallantry award recipient for EOD duties

#1
A Sgt Ammo Tech with 11 EOD Regt RLC is to be the first female to be awarded the QGM for EOD duties.

Persec prevents me from naming her, but her name will be published in the Birthday Honours List.

Congatulations.

Someone once said I was brave but there is just no way I could ever walk up to a bomb and settle down with it for a game of suduko. She must have seen what explosives do to human flesh. No amount of wrinkle cream would ever correct that. I think most of us have it in us to react in a brave manner if suddenly faced with a threat but to do it again and again takes real determination.
So, extreme congratulations and thanks. To her and everyone else who does that sort of job.
I sometimes think the only decent thing to come out of warfare is the opportunity it gives one to find out what we are made of. Set our own bottom line of I can or I cannot.

Well done that soldier, she has 'balls of steel' - as do all of her trade! (Wiring a plug is a drain on my ability! ...)

I used to work on the bleep side of EOD some years ago and the Operators deserve every bit of recognition and more that they get. Very well done that Soldier.

My mistake, it won't be published in the Birthday Honours list. It is published in the Bravery Awards in the supplement of the London Gazette. Full details published on the Intranet.
