I see they are not going to use Dainty or Diana [old Daring class DD names] probably because they don't sound 'manly enough' but are going to use Dauntless which was the WRNS training establishment :lol:

Perhaps she'll be the first to be fully "manned" by the distaff side with a Jenny Skipper. Wonder whatever happened to Lt. Sue Moore the first female skipper (HMS Dasher - Bristol URNU) in the mob. (who I had the pleasure of entertaining aboard my own boat in Calais way back in '99, I think it was !!!!). Nice girl and VERY tiny !!!

:lol:

yeah i met her in Hong Kong, she was drafted to us from BRNC for a short training period on the Peacock. Seemed ok and like you say not heard of her since her stint in command of the dasher

In the modern mixed-gender Andrew I should have thought that manly names were less imperative. In fact, perhaps we could see Flower Class reinstituted with another HMS Pansy :| and to encourage UA recruits, an HMS Teddy Bear - though that is perhaps going too far! :lol:
