The first female Navy Commander is believed to have left her vessel after allegations of having an affair with another officer.
42 year old Commander Sarah West took charge of HMS Portland in Plymouth in May 2012. The Ministry of Defence wouldn't confirm the claims - which if true would be in breach of Armed Forces Conduct - but was aware of a complaint. Commander West is currently on annual leave.
