Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm surprised that there doesn't seem to be a thread on this already. Good drills from the lass concerned. I know we like to take the mickey out of the boys and girls in dark blue, but this one has certainly done them proud.

    A very brave young lady and a credit to the Navy.
     
  4. Well done to this young lady ,The navy must be so proud of her .
     
  5. Well done that Matelot
     
  6. Balls of steel. Well done.
     
  7. Must admit, I saw her on Aunty Beeb this mroning and thought "Balls of steel, but she looks like a bag of shite". I guess good drill techniques aren't needed to get MC's.
     
  8. Good Drills! she has done the Senior Service Proud...

    Nice One and Well Done...


    And she is from Plymouth - Good Girl :wink:
     
  9. You c0ck.

    Well done to her.
     
  10. Well done that girl. If I met her, she could buy me a drink! :D
     
  11. seconded :compress:
     
  12. What a lass, eh? Absolutely marvellous drills on her part with no thought for her own safety. Very impressive indeed and well done to her for an award she thoroughly deserves.

    I do wonder why she's called an "Able Seaman" though. Once Harriet Hard-one gets wind of that, she'll be pushing to change the rank to "Able Seaperson", I bet.

  13. Suppose not as far as dress is concerned, however, she was obviously a brave lass doing her Service proud.
     
  14. WTF is wrong with her dress, apart from the obvious wrinkles caused by trying to fit a woman into square rig?

    She carries on a fine tradition of heroic medics in the armed forces. IIRC one of only a handful of people to be awarded the Victoria Cross twice was an army doctor who served during WW1.

    More bizarrely, I do believe the only person in history to hold the Iron Cross and the Victoria Cross at the same time was a medic.
