#1
A friend linked me an article on the Mail's website and this popped up on the side. It's the only way you'll get Britain's only woman commando out of her green beret - marry her! | Mail Online
Britain's only female Royal Marine Commando has ditched her standard military greens for gleaming wedding dress white.Major Pip Tattersall, 37, married Sergeant Stuart Delamere-Wright of the Royal Dragoon Guards in a private ceremony at Glen Tanar Chapel in Royal Deeside.Officer Pip from Tarland, Aberdeenshire met her husband-to-be in November 2010, while competing at the annual Army Snowboarding Championship in Austria.
The white stuff: Royal Marine Commando Pip Tatterstall and Stuart Delamere-Wright married in a private ceremony at Glen Tanar Chapel in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire


Love at first sight: Pip says she knew she was 'in trouble' the moment she laid eyes on Stuart

Major Tattersall, or Mrs Delamere-Wright as she will now be called, said she knew she was "in trouble" from the moment she first saw his eyes.She said: 'I'm so excited about being married. I think like most brides I just feel I'm the luckiest girl to find someone that I want to spend the rest of my life with and who wants to put up with me - I'm probably fairly intimidating.'I've got a lovely dress and the girly shoes - not quite the Katie Price meringue - it's very simple. And I have all the beauty treatments this week.'

So happy: The country's only female green beret says she feels like the luckiest girl to have someone she can spend the rest of her life with


Tough love: Pip is the only female to have passed the nine-week course to win her Royal Marines green beret, a course which is regarded as one of the toughest in the world

Pip is the only female to have passed the nine-week course to win her Royal Marines green beret, a course which is regarded as one of the toughest in the world.Despite two failed attempts, she persevered and overcame the physical challenges through sheer determination and drive to become the first woman to wear the coveted beret.Now Pip, who is involved in training medics for deployment to Afghanistan, wants to start a family.
First lady: Pip overcame two failed attempts to pass the ultra-tough green beret challenge

She is due to retire in 2013 after 16 years as a British officer and hopes to move back home to north east Scotland.Pip said she would remember her time in the armed forces with "fond memories" but was looking forward to the "next chapter" of her life.Her military career has taken her all over the world and even to a meeting with the Queen in 2003.
Too much? Major Tattersall worried that her husband might find her intimidating

On June 12, she will carry the Olympic torch between Aberdeen and Dundee, having been nominated by her friends and family.She said: 'I see it as a great opportunity for positive publicity for females in the Army and what people can achieve.'Pip and her new husband tied the knot last Friday and had their reception in Kincardine House at Kincardine O'Neil.They were joined by friends and family including Pip's mother Jenny and her father Clive who gave her away.

Out of curiosity, how easy is it for someone from the Educational branch to get on an AACC?

I'm sure that'll do wonders for discipline between the ranks.

It's amazing what 30 years under PC shits like Blair does for the country.

Weird short legs with baggy untailored blues and civvy 'jeans'. Topped off with pikey hair and patent George Boots. Either he's got a monster cock or she's as bogging as she looks.

As long as they're not in the same unit/immediate chain of command whats the problem?

Pissed off at some chick having more bollocks than many lads attempting the same course.

Would be more pissed off if some chicks were handed the same lid as the rest of the Brigade for just turning up.

Just getting my retaliation in first, so to speak.

Did she pass everything the same as the blokes or were the tests etc made gender fair?

Women, eh?

I think a green hat would look better with this outfit. I hear there's a course where you can get one, hmm, I'll go for it...

Bugger, failed. Still I'm not going to admit I can't do anything a man can do, and I still think I need to make that fashion statement!

Fuck it!! Nope, not giving in now, blokes will be dissing me behind my back and women will laugh at me at coffee mornings - here we go again...

Yay!!! Lovely new hat (can I call it that lads?)!

OK, proved my point, now on to woman stuff... need to find a man I can handle easily and who is, preferably, short sighted. Wait... Wait... Wait out.

Seen. Now to trap him and have babies, so I can have it all ways.

Good job I had all that money spent on me getting the green head gear before I realised my natural role in life.

What? I can't wear it? WTF?!?! Sod this for a game of soldiers...

;-P

:twisted:

From what I gathered from the comments, and from the NavyNet post on this I found when browsing (after a recent pondering as to whether I could apply to be a Bootneck), her "pass" might not be all it's cracked up to be. Of course, that's internet hear-say, and I'd like to continue in the belief that a Green lid is still a tough bugger to earn.

Most hideous fur wedding coat ever... hope the dress underneath was more decent looking! You'd think that some of the other commandos would have been able to give her tips on nice frocks!...
