Two women have made history by passing the Army’s gruelling six-month infantry training course – making them the first British female soldiers whose main purpose is to kill the enemy at close quarters.

In a hugely significant milestone for gender equality, Privates Chelsey Munday and Taylor Lewis passed out from the Infantry Training Centre (ITC) at Catterick, North Yorkshire, on Friday and will now join their respective regiments.

Last night, former head of the British Army, Lord Dannatt, led the praise for the trailblazing duo and urged their male counterparts to be ‘broad-minded enough’ to welcome their new colleagues.
