From Ceefax this morning, "Women Soldiers "Facing Frontline Ban" Female soldiers will not be allowed to serve in frontline combat zones alongside men, according to reports. Defence Secretary, Geoff Hoon, Will reportedly announce the decision in two weeks following a two-year study. The Independent said the study had concluded that the vast majority of servicewomen were not physically capable of taking part in close combat. The Ministry of Defence said no final decision had been taken." No $hit sherlock : But I wonder whether it actually means what it says in the first paragraph or if it is just the press over simplifying? Surely women will still serve in "frontline combat zones" they just wont serve in Inf/Cav regiments as is the case now?
