As this is Current Affairs and not the NAAFI, I shall adjust my reply as required.
Well done to Officer Cadet Sarah Hunter-Choat!
Tonati - Thanks for your contribution. Now go play on the runway.
If she's anything like her father, no surprise.
Well done, young lady.

Most able student wins award.
Second shock horror.
Women in HM Forces win multiple awards for gallantry in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Wouldnt have happened in my day - we were all to busy getting sloshed in BAOR and conducting freaky self exploration by shoving our miniscule todgers down the barrels of SLRs to have time to do the job for real...
Totally agree. She is following in her fathers footsteps, and he was top Cadet at Mons.
Well done to the Top Student, OP go back to your club and hide behind a copy of the Telegraph.
However this 'bit' made me chuckle.
Providing versatile, agile and battle-winning armed forces and a smaller, more professional Ministry of Defence
An outstanding achievement - Her father would have been very very proud indeed as I'm sure her family are too.
What am I missing? Following a rigorous assessment, the best candidate is selected for a prestigious honour? What's the problem?
'Wouldn't have happened in my day'.
Nope, you'd have been too busy staring at the Inner German Border waiting for the Reds to rock up. The world has moved on grandpa, so pop down the Legion and reminisce with your National Service buddies about just how good the bad old days were.
Oh, and welcome to the 21st century, by the way.
OP, is this you?

As for OCdt S H-C, she's done rather better than I would have.
And a top soldier and bloke too.
How many cap badges? French Foreign Legion, 7th Gurkhas, Royal Artillery, Royal Horse Artillery, SAS, Sultan of Oman's Special Forces...
For the life of me I cannot see an issue............................................................................................??
Very well done to her.
Would you please qualify that remark. Not all us Cold War warriors were, or are, thick ignorant out of date and mired in the past. Well done O/Cdt Hunter-Choat.
So, Monsieur Tonanti.
How's this one working out for you then?
