>>naked protests have long been used as a method of empowerment in the UK, from Lady Godiva in the 11th Century to Naked Bike Ride through London in 2017, used to highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to traffic.<<

According to their website, WNBR London has been riding annually since 2004 to protest for a better environment, safer cycling and the recognition that ordinary people have ordinary bodies.

Okay, we can tweak that to 'from Lady Godiva to annual World Naked Bike Ride which has been riding annually in cities such as London since 2004 to protest for a better environment, safer cycling and the recognition that ordinary people have ordinary bodies.

That sentence should be:
'That said the humour in Carry On Jack derives from a woman disguising herself as a Midshipman, which isn't a job women are considered able to do even at a time when the navy is so short of men that they're willing to recruit the incompetent.'

But if you want to trim it then feel free. smiley - smiley

That's incredibly insulting to women but in the context of the film's plot (and I just watched The Sound of Music again over the festive season, which contained the song "Sixteen Going On Seventeen" - where the girl basically can't function in life without the assistance of a teenage boysmiley - facepalm) I'll allow it smiley - winkeye

I've read through and may I ask for one minor tweak:
'many female characters in the series exist solely to allow the male characters the opportunity to saw 'phwoar!' – that should be: say 'phwoar'

But thanks again for taking on this giant monster of an entry smiley - hug
