Girl soldiers make web a phwoar zone
SCORES of female soliders are parading their assets on dating sites like Tinder.
But there are fears they are making themselves potential targets for spies and terrorists.
We found dozens of images showing military personnel posing in unform, gym kit, bikinis and underwear.
Now the Daily Star Sunday understands that senior commanders have warned troops who post sexy selfies they could jeopardise their own security.
Soldiers are routinely told to be aware of the risks when posting material on web platforms.
But one serving female soldier told us: “It’s only a bit of fun and I think it shows soldiers are human like everyone else.
“Just because you wear a shapeless Army uniform in your day job doesn’t mean you can’t look sexy.”
Women serving in the Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Israeli Armies have also posted pictures of themselves on the web, with many appearing on a military Facebook page called Fill Your Boots.
One source said: “The Ministry of Defence is constantly warning troops to be careful about what they post on social media, including dating apps.
“All soldiers face the threat of being targeted by terrorists if they give away personal details.
“The issue of women posting selfies is something new. Foreign intelligence agencies could use this as a method of exploiting female soldiers by offering them modelling contracts.
“Many female soldiers work in very sensitive posts such as intelligence and signals and could be easily targeted.”
In a separate development, troops have been told they risk spending time inside military jail if they post pornographic images or videos on the web.
A warning order issued to units last week revealed how one soldier who posted obscene footage was locked up for three months inside the Army’s prison in Colchester.
The offender was also fined three months’ wages.
The document revealed that troops have been warned they could be fined by the Army for a host of other offences such as vaping in barracks, which carries a penalty of £162.
Driving Army vehicles while using a phone means a fine of £176.
Posting racist or pornographic material leads to the most severe punishments.
A warning on the document said: “The service discipline system is there to punish illegal activity and to reinforce high standards.
“Social media forms an increasing part of our lives. As you can see there is great potential for it to get you into trouble. If in doubt, don’t post it.”
