A CORPORAL nicknamed Combat Barbie by her colleagues has been chosen to launch a new campaign offering members of the armed forces money off at a high-street lingerie chain.

Katrina Hodge, of the Royal Anglian Regiment, is helping publicise La Senza's offer of a 15% discount to servicemen and women.

The 22-year-old, who came second in this year's Miss England contest, has served in Iraq where she was recognised for her bravery for disarming an insurgent when she was only 18.

She said: “I am enjoying the attention and profile but my job is still as an army soldier. I love the army life and if this encourages more women to join up then that would be brilliant.

“I'm so proud of this campaign and I really hope that it encourages other high street stores to offer discounts to men and women in the armed forces.”
