Corporal Lynda Bird (aka Bird)

Corporal Lynda Bird (aka Bird), the ECM (Electronic Counter Measures) operator, just wants to be one of the lads. And she pretty much is – she can go toe-to-toe with the rest of her team when it comes to swearing or fighting.

Sharp-tongued and full of common sense, she doesn’t suffer fools gladly, which is a pity given her close proximity to so many. From Portsmouth, so joining the Army was a small rebellion. Against joining the Navy.

Wine or beer? Beer. Obvs. If you ever see me with a glass of white wine, punch me in the head.

Best and worst thing about being in the Army? Hanging out with Bluestone 42. For both.

Do you mind being a woman in a very male environment? You got a problem with that? ‘Cos I don’t!
