was this the girl who achieved the technical 'pass' having completed the AACC in several stages?

So why is she wearing a blue beret in the 3rd pic? (and why has he forgotten the braces for his trousers)

Here we go, stand by for the plethora of " a mate said", "I heards" and "DINs state" comments ref did she didn't she etc...... lets be honest, she looks no different than most bootnecks on a run ashore.

Because she's in the Army, specifically the AGC and would only wear the green beret when attached to 3 Commando Brigade.

Balls! I heard Cheryl Cole was the only female Royal Marine - previous for violence, racist remarks and looks good in a black dress (hoofin' PW too, apparently):



[And she's got her brown wings too, according to Andy B***r, her grippo!)

Here's a nice quote found at the bottom. Oddly enough, i didn't have to look that hard;

"15:39 Not that hard then if a woman passed. "P" Company-the best and the hardest for the best and the hardest. Utrinque Paratus.

I sit firmly on the fence here but from experience, wings do not a soldier make.

I also wonder how this chap would fare when put up against some of the ladies who have made it through SRR selection and also the vominator.

There it is. I've spent a lot of time with our airborne cousins and as much as i like them, some of them have a real spastic mentality.
