Letter: A bounder, but what about her?

Sir: Kevin O'Sullivan (letter, 4 October) provides the soldiers' distinction between bounder and cad; albeit somewhat historic, having been learnt on National Service. My understanding is that they do the same thing, but the cad brags about it afterwards in the mess; more recently in the press.

As the vices of the bounder and the cad are not solitary, I wonder are there similar distinctive military terms to distinguish the lady in the case?

Yours faithfully,
