Women have been allowed to serve on British submarines for six years. The impact to crew morale of this change, outfitting the vessels for women and these resignations is very expensive.
The identity of a female officer accused of having sex on board a nuclear-armed submarine has been revealed.
HMS Vigilant was submerged in the North Atlantic when reports of two high-ranking submarine officials having sexual relations with two different women emerged – something which is forbidden between serving personnel on the same vessel.
It has emerged one of those women is believed to be Sub-Lieutenant Rebecca Edwards, who led a Remembrance Day service in Glasgow just 11 months ago, as some of her comrades threatened to resign over the sex scandal.
