    Women have been able to serve in frontline roles for a while, Kate Nesbit received the Military Cross

    As a woman one of the things that put me off joining the forces was that I could serve on the frontline at that point. My eldest son and husband have both served, husband also in Falklands, son on submarines.
    I feel the idea that women should and can’t serve in the frontline is somewhat old fashioned.
