The Royal Air Force has become the first branch of the British military to open up every role to men and women.
From Friday it will accept applications from women to join the RAF Regiment - its ground-fighting force.
My views on this have evolved over the years.
I don't have a issue with women in the RAF at all. In the future, many combat roles will be based in control centres in the UK piloting drones, so I don't see any moral or physical issues with having women in those roles.
For the navy, I am not so sure, especially submarines which are cramped.
Will there need to be women's toilets and bathrooms on ships and submarines. There just isn't room?
On the physical side, I don't see an issue with women in the navy, I am sure they can do most jobs, but it is more the morale question of putting potential mothers in harms way.
For the army, special forces or any other ground based unit which might go into combat, I am vehemently opposed to women being in these roles.
Women's bodies are not the same as men and putting women through the same kind of training as men, would put a significant strain on them and that's before they even got into a combat zone. Again, the morale issue of putting potential mothers in harms way, is something I dislike.
What do you think?
