What happens when a Royal Navy warship sees a NATO task force headed straight for it? A crash course in Morse

Re: Sky TV

Many years ago my first serious girlfriend had always wanted to join the Royal Navy. Her father had always refused her the permission needed for under 21s. Now she was 22 he changed tack and said he had no problem with it - but what about my reaction - "Oh he agrees".

Her hope was to see a bit of the world - although there were limited bases to which women were posted - and not on ships in those days.

Meeting up with her a few years later over dinner it transpired she had been based all the time at Holy Loch in Scotland - so much for seeing the world. Her civilian nursing skills had been turned to being a dental hygienist. She was happy we had avoided the local expectation of a young marriage - and it also broke that mould for me through then accepting company overseas postings for a decade.
