The Army were not too clever - last year - using/exploiting real, live, young, soldiers to meet the Army’s own ends, with no consideration of the knock-on effect to the “volunteers”.I reckon the RAF chain of command have done the young girl a complete disservice and made her life considerably harder by splashing her all over the media.
The Army made a conscious decision not to do the same with the first RAC, and subsequently Infantry females . . . .
Good luck to her, but I fear she will be given a rough time by some and it could all end in a much publicised and acrimonious departure from service.
Ever the optimist
Remember the recruit advertising “posters” ?!
The young “volunteers” including in the “posters”, were not warned, guided, or counselled, as to any likely repercussions.
Others can fill-on the details, but this did lead to one lad unfortunately leaving after the “bullying” he subsequently received.
