Female sailors: Most Senior KIA

#1
Have heard from two sources that a Superintendent WRNS was killed during an air-raid in Exeter.She appears to have been engaged in a Wrens recruiting drive in 1942 when she met her death.

The USN and USMC have lost a female Lieutenant and female Major to enemy action in recent times.

Standing by for a marines are not sailors riposte. They do more seatime than 1940s Wrens.

Female Sailor? No disrespect to the deceased but in 1942, 'Wrens' were not sailors. Hadn't you heard?
Haven't you heard-surely.Notwithstanding --The WRNS killed aboard HMS Fidelity weren't sailors?More sailor perhaps than some Chief and W.O's at Seahawk and Heron have ever seen or likely to.

The First Officer to whom you referred in one of your earlier posts was SOE so her WRNS rank may have been 'cover' and she may not have been involved with operating the ship (which granted can apply to marines at sea). She was after all French, and once again no disrespect.

Perhaps with some googling or more robust research, we can find more naval females KIA to satisfy your need to piss on Cdr West's parade.

Or Commodores at Faslane. The normometer is twitching....

Do you have an obsession with female naval KIAs or what? I find it a bit distasteful to boil their sacrifice down to what rank they were
