You'll either be pleasantly surprised or shocked Mr Basil! The rule book says tattoos mustn't be visible when you're wearing full Number 1s, any other time is acceptable. So neck, wrists and face tend to be the only place people can't choose to have a tattoo. And yes, I've seen officers as well as NCOs in short sleeves with whole arms of tattoos (and PTIs with legs covered in them).

Inked from Dick to Head is OK then - very apt.

I have a far greater respect for (Hon) Gp Capt Vorderman than for another lady (Hon) Lt Cdr (RNR) of our aquaintance.

She opened the new International Aviation Academy in Norwich yesterday, along with Commandant Air Cadets, Air Commodore Dawn McAfferty. Her impact on the Cadets she meets should not be underestimated and on the few occasions that I met the Commandant before I left the Corps, I never ceased to be impreessed...

Reminds me of when she was on the TV program "Countdown" just after receiving the MBE recounting that her daughter said it meant "Mumīs Bumīs Enormous". With that humour she fits well in the RAF IMHO.
