The Royal Marines - is looking for its first female Commando...

A look back at a report that many may not have seen.



To date, no female has passed out as a Royal Marine commando, despite 250 applicants from 2019 to 2021.

Sergeant Lucy Chappell has a unique role at Commando Training Centre Lympstone.

Two-time Olympic cycling champion Victoria Pendleton spoke during the 'Optimising Female Performance' presentation.

Why do they persist with this ? Why not attempt to 'enforce' females into professional football, rugby, cricket etc etc competing with their male counterparts ?? If Politicians really wish to push 'equality' then do it evenly handedly across all areas of employment, instead of being selective and attempting to undo the military. Additionally if specifically selected 'supreme' female athletes can't make it through basic RM training, then cancel the whole agenda.
