Play / pause Joining Up

Joining Up

  • Shobha Earl
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


My family, when I decided to join up,

had mixed reactions.

My father was very pro me joining up,

because he was very much of the opinion that

we should try and fit into the country

that we'd chosen to make our home,

and he was quite pleased that I was looking to do

something a bit different.

My mother, on the other hand, was absolutely horrified.

You know, I was the youngest of six, her little girl.

Young female going to join what was perceived to be

a male-orientated service.

She was not happy at all.

Thankfully, father overruled her.
