OVER 300 Fijian female personnel have served in the British Army since 1961.
Major Daren Dangerfield, the British Army Support Officer based in Suva highlighted this an email correspondence with the Fiji Times.
Major Dangerfield said there was no quota on how many females could be recruited from Fiji.
“As many of them can wish to join. We support both male and female equally in all three services. We all so support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender(LGBT) and been an equal rights employer,” Major Dangerfield said.
“For the last eight years, there is not exact number because of many factors but over 200, so an increase over recent years.”
