First Royal Armoured Corps Female Talks About Why She Wanted To Drive Tanks

Posted on March 8, 2019

The reservist, who has served with the Royal Wessex Yeomanry since January 2016, said, simply: “I don’t know.”

“You don’t want any spotlight on you. You just want to be able to get on and do the job because you’re good at it – not just because you’re a female.”

Cpl Taylor admits the British Army is pretty much all she’s known, having spent 11 years in the Royal Military Police. After leaving regular service, she wasted no time in joining the Reserves – transferring the very next day. Cpl Taylor went for her current position at a time when women had only just been permitted to apply for the Armoured Corps.
