Accuracy in the Daily Mail

According to the Daily Mail:

The Royal Navy has banned posters of glamour models so as not to offend women sailors.

New rules have been brought in after women complained of feeling intimidated by the soft porn.

Sailors can no longer pin up nude pictures of their wives and girlfriends on board surface ships, submarines and at shore bases.

Did sailors actually do this? Put up nude pictures of their wives and girlfriends? Sure, they’d put up nude pics of women, e.g. glamour models. And they’d put up pics of their wives and girlfriends. But nude pics of their wives and girlfriends? I doubt it.

  1. Surely it’s ‘wives OR girlfriends’ for most sailors – or is it one per port?

    Gotta love the expression ‘glamour models’, probably less glamour more Hustler.

  2. The second half of the Saturday toast of the Royal Navy is not official, but hallowed by tradition: Wives and Sweethearts (may they never meet).

  3. “Did sailors actually do this? Put up nude pictures of their wives and girlfriends?”

    Absolutely, yes.

    The wives usually end up on the inside of their lockers, though. Propriety, you know.

    Heh! Fair point. 🙂

  5. Yes, well they did. On the inside of the locker door until you got “Dear John”d, at which point they went on the gronk board.
