Watching episode 3.

A $1 billion pound Destroyer HMS Duncan and the laundry crew are not Royal Navy sailors?

There was a leak in the laundry room that was flooding that floor and a floor below and the ship's Chief engineer and her engineering crew was trying to locate the source.

The laundry crew was standing around waiting for it to be repaired while the amount of laundry was piling up.

From the looks of them, they don't look like Royal Navy enlisted personnel.

The guy is wearing a t-shirt, definitely not Royal Navy uniform.

In the last photo, that's an old Asian lady standing on the edge of the machine so she doesn't get her feet wet with the leaking dirty water.

Notice how she is wearing flip flops and not Royal Navy issued boots and shoes.

She definitely is not a Royal Navy sailor.

Everyone else that was standing around helping to mop up the flooding water while the engineering crew work on locating the source are all wearing Royal Navy uniforms:

If they are civilians, I hope they are told that the ship may go to war at anytime and there is the possibility it may get sunk by the enemy and that they may die on it.

I'll have to ask 2 of my friends,they both served in the Navy,although it was a while back,things may have changed.

We do have the RFA (Royal Fleet Auxiliary) which is composed of civilians but I don't think that answers your specific question.


Feminists are so used to preferential treatment that equal treatment seems like discrimination.

That was fascinating Vitesse,thanks.

I was already familiar with the term 'dhobi wallah' from 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum' smile

That post will give you your answer NoFlyBoy although I will still have a chat with my friends in case they have anything interesting to add.
