Women on the frontline - Telegraph 11th October 2008

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by The_Professor, Oct 11, 2008.

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. 7 posts in and you ask about this, "again" what rag do you work or?

    Some reme bint sun bathing is not a girlie on the front line, and the question of the weaker sex doing the inf job has been done to death.

    Either, get a real job, or read through the forums.
  2. Apparently written by a photographer..................

    I like a good dhobi, a face pack and a bronzy now and again. No drama with that

    Journo prof?
  3. Not journo, soldier. Well, thats what they tell me the uniform means.

  4. Journo then.....
  5. Clearly an up to date and accurate article then. 52 Bde left Afghanistan in Mar/Apr.

    What relevance has the colour of her hair to the job she is doing. It smacks of a certain dumbing down of the article to me; as well as being unfair on the excellent job she was obviosly doing as a BattleGroup Engineer in Iraq.
  6. If it was that well researched then they would have called them by their correct ranks!

    There are no Ptes in the REME or the Sappers.

    Bloody journos!
  7. Getting anything right is not a media priority. Creating a fictional underdog-overdog situation and casting the army as the inflexible, misogynist organisation to suit their political views is what matters.

    The Telegraph is going downhill at a rate of knots...
