ONE WOMAN was among the 400 ratings to be advanced to the new rate of Fleet Chief Petty Officer. She was CWREN (Stores) Beatrice May Willis who joined the Navy in 1947. HMS Dreadnought had become the first British submarine to break surface at the North Pole. Her patrol took her 1,500 miles under the ice, and she collected scientific data before returning.

ONE of the Navy's best-known landmarks for the previous 50 years, the China Fleet Club in Hong Kong, was to be demolished. The valuable water- front site would be re-occupied by a multi-storey block, several floors of which would accommodate the new club. The Second Frigate Squadron was disbanded.
