The MoD Armyjobs website lists all the Artillery trades as being open to females. Including the OP Assistant and Special Observer roles, which I find surprising since I thought these were basically Infantry roles. So what's the deal? Do Female soldiers actually do these jobs or is it only once in a blue moon that one applies and gets through? Also, do they have to meet the same physical requirements? (In my opinion they should for all Military jobs) I'm just curious because in Australia the closest thing to combat women get is MPs (Other than the Navy where they can do everything except Special Ops). Please don't let this turn into another endless "women in combat" thread, I was just wondering if it actually happens or not.
