Good book and respect to anyone, male or female, who has served with SF. But the title is deliberatly misleading. She was not Badged SAS. As far as I am aware, no woman ever has been.

14 Int, if memory serves.

Yes, I know. And as I stated before, I respect anyone who serves with an SF unit, male or female.

14 Int were very good at their job, but 14 Int does not sound as "sexy" as SAS, which is why the title is deliberately misleading.

The Operators from James Rennie I thought was very good too.
Probably because this particular tome had the 'support' of UKLF. Pragmatism to the forefront, the liason between them and the author worked for the better and was conspiciously not a 'kill and tell'.

I agree with your comment.

I agree. There were three burds around her time working out of the Hereford accomodation, she wasn't one of them.

I enjoyed The Operators as well. Made a change from the usual "SAS porn". :D

I doubt we'll read any books written by SRR soldiers; presuemably they will have signed non-disclosure aggreements.

Are the SRR guys getting SF pay? if so then i guess not...
Well, they are SF, so they should qualify for SF pay.

On a more serious note, I read in one of the papers(forget which one)today that the soldierkilled in Afghanistan yesterday was SAS.

The Sarah Ford book came out at a time when publishers were slapping 'SAS' on the front of every book which vaguely mentioned the military in any way. As it happens, my memory of the book is that Sarah Ford saw quite a bit of 'action' with members of the SAS... :D

Shame on you Frank- reading the Guardian. This was based purely on
a) the relatives of the deceased not wishing them to be named and
b) the deceaseds unit not being named.
