  • Signaller rescues man from drowning

    http://forum.irishmilitaryonline.com...ad.php?t=18177

    Good drills. People have got DSMs for similar in the past.

        Excellent work from Signalman Kells - just the sort of PR that the army needs.

              i have no idea what the shipmates or flyboys do but i'm used to being told on here how in the Irish DF everyone is equal unlike the British Army - this doesn't reflect this.

              however keeping on topic, whether she is a Signalman or Signalwoman or Signaller - well done girl.

                Anyways, well done that lady

                  Check the dfr's. I believe the rank is signalman. When the ladies came into signals it was changed by local arrangement only. A change to signaller would be appropriate though.

                  Do the call them privateess in the infantry?

                      What if she used what she had learnt in her military training to carry out said act? ie, if she was a civvy, she wouldn't have done it.

                        Here If Big Jim got a DSM for makin the Army soft then surely your one can get one for having a set of spuds and saving a life!

                        And as you know kermit PDFers dont have civlian time......
                        But there's no danger

                              No DSM..off duty .

                              DSMs are only handed out to those performing acts above and beyond while in the course of their duties.

                              Lets just say I was in a similar situation some years ago.


                              Water safety Association will probably give her an award.

                              Good stuff that soldier..at least I can't be wrong in using that term.She is a credit to the army ,probably get a hearty hand shake from here OC.

                              The she has the award that she probably would care most about , the fact she save another human life.It stays with you when you put yourself in danger to save another and the feeling you get is reward enough.
