Possible First Female Bravery Award in Iraq!!!!!!!!

#1
May I direct all RAMC to the topic in Current affairs called "Good Drills"

Read about a fellow Medic, doing what we train for and putting herself in harms way to rescue an injuried soldier!

Well done that Lass!!!!!!!

Absolutly fantastic. Well done that girl. All those old and bold who moan about the youth of today have something to shut them up

Had a look and posted earlier on that, I hope she gets a decent gong for her efforts.

Well done again Pte Norris.

Give her the top gong, putting herself at risk under enemy fire in order to treat an injured colleague.

MiD?

Read the report in a rag and MC I reckon, good on her

Arrse thing though is i know a lad who did pretty much the same thing in Sarajevo and all he got was a GOC's Commendation

She did two things right...Kept her head down and pulled an Opo to safety. Good drills girl.

At least there will be a better story than the usual C*ap you hear in Cheeks from the cherry berets. Well done that soldier...

Another mindful soldier striving to serve others...

Well done! I hope she gets a decent award, not just an MID but the MC or something similar, for doing her best under fire to help a wounded soldier.

Pte Norris, 19, who is nicknamed Chuck after the film star, is attached to C Company, 1 Bn the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment.
This is the same Coy that Pte Beharry VC served with in 2004. The "Mighty C" still in the thick of it.

God speed for a safe return.

A credit to the corps and a much needed boost to morale in the field. If you are wounded a medic will be there to look after you.

More power to Pte Norris.

A powerful example to her peers that being a medic really isn't just about counting boxes and doing PULHHEEMS updates. And that being a girl doesn't mean not getting shot at in today's Army. Another nail in the all-male Infantry's coffin.

My money's on an MC, principally because of the media coverage but that's not to say she doesn't deserve it.

IF

Saw this yesterday and thought then that a top award was well deserved.
Just doing her duty in the line of fire (or stones as she thought bless her!)
Either way award certainly beckons certainly a case of training and reaction taking over from personal safetly good on her!

She is RAMC attached to a unit lets hope they look after her in this respect.

Cheers

Guys, I`m a little confused. Why is there mention of a Bravery Award for her? The report on the Army Net is a little confusing, but reads like this for those who haven`t read it......

Attended the scene, thought someone was throwing stones, turned out to be a sniper. Got inside the warrior, asked if any was hurt. No reply, then the driver shouts yes the commander is hit. Climbs outside the warrior (at this point it doesn`t say whether she still thought the noise was stones or not). Seems the commander is in a bad way. Driver pulls her inside vehicle drives to HLS. end ex.


Another PR award I think? Like the one on Op Telic 6, who got the QCVS, for shagging the Staff Regt.

Also alittle concerned about the statement "She gets on really well with the lads of C Coy". Well she would wouldn`t she shes got women bits!!!!

No sorry I`m not convinced at all!!!!!!!!!


I know of numerous male medics, who did the same if not more, and got nothing!!!!
