    Some of us know what happened to the last Artemis, not an omen I hope.
  5. Kin'ell. She's big enough to have her own postcode.
  6. She seems to be as large as a small county but good luck to her none the less.
  7. We had a female XO on the Anglesey back in 2002/3
  8. We had a Leading Wren Writer did out pay in Faslane back in 1966. :roll:

    Hmm, "female in charge of a ship...". In this day and age? Who'd have thunk it?!

    I think I'll switch over to the other channel - the News is on... :roll:
  10. Whoever heard of such a thing? Next thing you know, we'll see the first female Captain of a Jumbo jet.

    (1984 - Beverly Lynn Burns, an airline Captain since 1979).
  11. I think you missed that one, I am sure in thd days when I was a corporate warrior I was flown by more than one female captain
  12. Read the small print Peter or, even better, click on it.

    As far as I know regular medicals conducted by MCA approved doctors are required for UK officers and ratings normally every 2 years but the doctor may limit the validity in the case of salad dodgers.

    Compared with some RN officers (especially surgeons) and ratings Captain Breton is a racing snake. Glass houses.
  14. I didn't get where I am today by reading the small print.
  15. Yes, CJ. That's how I once ended up in Fife (Rosyth) too. :wink:
  16. Trifle chubby? Her displacement cannot be much less than that of her ship!

    But as long as she does a good job, who cares and who apart from the crew would notice if the Captain is male or female.
  17. Spouse?
  18. Why, do you fancy your chances?
  19. *shudder*

    No, just suggesting that in addition to the crew any spouse or other close relative may be aware of her gender.

    But you knew that... :p
