Gents.. I've just finished reading 'Battleship' by Martin Middlebrook about the loss of the Prince of Wales and Repulse in 1941. There are several mentions in the book about PoW being considered a 'Jonah' ship by the crew of Repulse and the RN in general. My question is.. In todays more enlightened RN, are some ships still labelled as unlucky and (bearing in mind PoW will be one of the new carriers) does this reputation attach itself to ships with the same name? I suppose what I'm trying to get at is whether sailors are still superstitous types?
