A good day to be an Englishman #4

Especially when the Current Miss England is Lance Corporal Katrina Hodge.

L/Cpl Hodge has been given leave from her duties as a soldier in the British Army and will represent England in the Miss World Final in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday December 12.
She was previously given an award by her unit in the Royal Anglian Regiment for her actions during a posting in Basra and has earned the nickname ''Combat Barbie''.
She has also previously worked with lingerie chain La Senza on its Face of the Armed Forces campaign.
Lisa Bond, marketing director of La Senza said: ''Not only is she absolutely gorgeous but she is also an intelligent, inspiring young woman who does such an amazing job for her country.''
I'm really pleased for L/Cpl Hodge and was disappointed that she missed out in the original competition. Hopefully she'll act as a brilliant role model for the young ladies of England.

I know someone who is a pal of this young woman. Her looks certainly haven't gone to her head I'm told. Good for her.
