Well???????Signaller replaced Signalman to cater for the ladies.Craftsman and Kingsman are the only two i can think of that might offend,although i am sure there are more.

Maybe the next step will be to change our surnames if they are likely to offend others.
Lt.Col Avril Bridgeman,the Officer leading the equality and diversion drive......, should be renamed
Lt Col. Avril Bridgeperson.

I think the clue's in the Female officers' name. If it's true then I will have to change my name to "Shellduck"! Or as our Colonial friends call it "Incoming!"

All this health and safety and political correctness really wind me up, why don't you get un intermediaries in places like Afganistan, they could call in on the enemy and explain that IED's should not really be used as someone is likely to get injured, once you got started it could just go on and on, very soon PC etc would be forgotten

Health and safety officers in Afghanistan?Don`t think so..Not a very healthy or safe place.
