Aye from what I see there she dont look the type capable of chaining long up to the top lift of a job. Interesting to see if she is going to be treated the same way as the other trainees in the game, i.e. Labouring on a quick gang of scaffs on target. Then again I AM a male cheuvanist pig for speaking my mind.. heh heh heh .

fine sp,id say the girl is exceptional & well done to her.she took the job on before all this p.c. crap,you have only to look at the way the armed forces are going with girls being allowed up in the front line.

listen mate,you can have the moral high ground on this one,me being an ex-paratrooper with multiple tours of northern Ireland etc.i meant girls in the combatant role eg:maybe sticking a round or bayonet into some raghead!!.
girls have always played a vital role of those men up in the front,but maybe their is somethings that should be left to the blokes to deal with purely for co-hesion.
if I have personally offended you,then I don't take it as personal..as I don't know you.

just for you information mate SP is also an ex para , there is a good few ex forces here ,
so maybe a little bit less of the sticking a round or bayoneting might be in order
