Ah she said yes then,
picture of him proposing on the FB thread but no clue as to her response!

"Among those returning were Leading Engineering Technician (LET) Jack Lowe, from Stoke-on-Trent, who had to postpone proposing to his girlfriend because of the warship's delayed return to the UK.

The 20-year-old got down on one knee to pop the question to Amy Clarke, also 20, from Portsmouth, who said yes with tears of joy in her eyes.

LET Lowe said: "I wanted to ask Amy before Christmas; I had planned to take her to Paris, so I was gutted when I couldn't.

"I am just happy she said yes, I was really nervous. Maybe we'll go to Paris now anyway.''

Miss Clarke said: "It's absolutely amazing, of course I said yes.

"I'm feeling all nervous.''

Is it just me or does LET Lowe seem to be missing something essential in a hookie? Like hooks.

I think that the journalists have referred to the RN website for clarification, as the photo of Jack and Amy on the article about the ship's return (fourth photo in the gallery on the page) is the following and the caption says:

"Leading Engineering Technician Jack Lowe proposes to girlfriend Amy Clarke as he steps off of the gangway of HMS Illustrious, upon her return to Portsmouth. Image by LA(phot) Ian Simspon (sic)."
