Women in the Armed Forces
These young women of colour from the West Indies and Africa follow a long-standing tradition of women in the armed forces, who stand ready beside Britain to keep us safe.
This tradition can be traced as far back as the 16th Centenary when women played a part in the armed forces. And to the battle of Waterloo where women dressed as men to be able to fight.
In today’s world women no longer must hide their gender, whether, in the Army, Air Force, or Navy, they can show then selves as women capable of doing a job as well as the men in the armed forces.
