Gini Carlin likes to see herself as the Mariah Carey of BFBS, spending her days being carried around Command on a chaise lounge by members of her team, changing her ball gown up to seven times a day, not permitting anyone to look her directly in the eye and insisting on her egg and chips being cooked by the nation’s top military chefs.
Ginster has been with the old firm quite a while clocking up some pretty decent Forces air miles. Two tours of Germany, a sojourn to Canada, a tour of Cyprus, four years on the Rock of Gibraltar, three tours to Iraq and two to Afghanistan, she is currently Station Manager in the Falklands.
It’s fair to say our Ginster has a fair grasp of the Forces World, especially it would seem Warzones. She spent seven and a half months in Afghanistan returning for a six month tour less than a year later (any reports of Gini’s lengthy stays in the Middle East being compared to Alan Partridges 183 days in the Linton Travel Tavern will be strongly rebutted by her lawyers) it is simply not true that the RAF sent a Lexus to get her home.
Gini is a martial arts fan especially MMA and boxing, she has been known to run up steps really fast like Rocky when he was training, but these days she needs four glasses of wine, a defibrillator and at least a week off if she were to even consider it. Two months leave of absence and a private ward in a Bupa clinic if she were to actually do it.
