    I have seen this somewhere. In todays military everyone goes through that.

    It was allways awkward trying to correct mistakes on a females uniform during an inspection.

    I can imagine - make an accidental wrong move and get yourself slapped w/ a sexual harrassment charge.

    "hat" - it's not a baseball cap.:D

    They're wearing berets, but headwear is commonly referred to in the US military as a "cover." I wouldn't imagine the Brits would call their headwear "hats." I could be wrong.

    There appears to be something amiss here... Her chest seems to have
    fallen a bit..... it's just above her belt ! That's it.... Prince Charles wants
    to lift them back up to where they should be.

    Is she wearing pilot's wings ?

    Is she the first female Palace guard? I thought that gal was older. Thought I read that somewhere.

    No... I saw the first female Palace guard on the news and it isn't her on the picture. The first female Palace guard has short black/white hair and has something like 26 years of service in the British military.

    Agreed.

    The next guy I hear saying that British girls are fat-asses with bad teeth gets a punch in his mouth. ;)

    Does the Prince of Wales look REALLY old or what...he resembles more a sundried prune; the Queen does not necessarily looks that much older than her son.

    If the gentleman manages to become King he will be senile by then.

    OK, settle down chaps – and some of you take a cold shower! Some answers that I hope are correct:

    The Berets are light blue, indicating that the personnel are members of the Army Air Corps (AAC) or ‘Teeny Weeny Airways’ as they are known by the other UK Services.

    The young lady is indeed aircrew – the brevet on her left…um… how can I say this? – breast :oops: – shows that. However as the wings seem to have a slightly greater dihedral to them; this may signify that she is an observer/aircrewman ..er.. aircrewperson – I’m not that well up on Army insignia. Alternatively, they may just be flapping more contentedly in the knowledge that they are, well, where they are :p .

    HRH The Prince of Wales is probably conducting an Investiture of a campaign medal (Iraq and/or the ‘Stan) by the look of it – note that the chap on her left does not yet have a medal but that his uniform has the clasp receiver on his left side onto which the Prince can affix the medal without too much fumbling.

    Talking of fumbling, the REALLY interesting photo would have been the one before this – when HRH was affixing the medal to her (admittedly, ample, nay magnificent) bosom! But then again, that’s probably what they are chuckling about! :D

    Oh yes, we grow them big, buxom and even the girls have B... the size of footballs. You should have seen some of the ATCOs that I had under my command - some then them would do a Sleazedown instead of a Talkdown if the occasion (or the pilot) took them!
