Minimum Height to join the Royal Navy & Royal Marines is now 145cms.

Aircrew specialisations remain 151.5 cms. Submariners 157 cms.

145cm (4'9" in old money) bloody hell, that's only 10 cm (3.9") taller than an under 12 needs to be to stop using a child seat in a car!

I'm sure there is some logic attached to all these height requirements but I am a little confused that submariners have the highest minimum.

I was wondering the same, I never knew there was a minimum height for boats, logic would dictate a maximum though.
 
^Aye, these revised heights relate to the standard internal dimensions of the RN's latest S/M Escape Chamber*

hT = hS + hL

hT relates to height Total, S is for Stumpy & L is for Lofty

*Believed to have origins in that well-known Latin swimboy dit: “Nanos gigantium humeris insidentes”,

It didn't take long to remember where to duck/dodge when walking around on YOUR boat - it became second nature.

Then you'd get a call round to another boat. Walk along 2 deck, swerve - nothing there, THWACK- same valve slightly different position!
