Sub's skipper sunk over bikini plan

AN Australian navy submarine skipper who suggested female sailors wear bikinis to help reverse a recruitment crisis has been criticized by law makers but supported by superiors, local media said yesterday.

Commander Tom Phillips also joked in a men's magazine interview that the submariner equivalent of the notorious "mile-high club" for people having sex in aircraft was the "going down club."

Asked by Ralph magazine "if female sailors all had to be hot and had to wear bikinis, would that help recruitment?", Phillips responded: "It would certainly get the right demographic of young men in. I'm not sure how feasible it is, however."
