Katrina Hodge, nicknamed ‘Combat Barbie’, is a female soldier of the British Army who fought bravely in Iraq in 2005. She fought Iraqi insurgents and saved the lives of her regiment members.
They were held at gunpoint when their vehicle overturned but L/Cpl Hodge punched the gunman and took his rifles.
She said: “I was in complete shock at first. The force of the accident caused our vehicle to roll over three times and threw us off guard.
“As I came round, the Iraqi suspect was standing over us with the rifles. I knew if I didn’t act fast then our lives would be in danger.
“I punched him and the force startled him enough for me to retrieve the rifles from him.”
Hodge,also a part-time model, is now contesting the Miss England 2008 beauty contest and will take part in the Miss England 2008 Finals after she won the Miss Tunbridge Wells crown.
