39-Year-Old Naval Captain Removed From His Post Over Inappropriate And Amorous Texts

A celebrated 39-year-old naval captain was reportedly removed from the post after he sent out inappropriate and romantic texts. These were directed toward a female sailor under Tom Knott MBE’s command.

Commander Tom Knott MBE is understood to have reportedly sent out suggestive texts to a junior member of the ship’s firm. He was removed from his post as a ship captain of HMS Trent during the weekend. He carried out NATO responsibilities as part of a counter-terrorism assignment in the Mediterranean.

The former official was accused of sending “inappropriate” messages following a night out at a foreign port. It is understood that he was present with the ship’s company.

A Royal Navy source mentioned to MailPlus that alcohol and command do not mix.

The source added that one too many in this case have resulted in unacceptable behaviour. It made the position untenable and was also in contravention of the code of social conduct. They added that one point is too many, but they still would want to think they are turning a corner.

The paper further reported that Commander Knott is the subject of a more comprehensive examination into future employment.

This came through after the First Sea Lord ordered a stringent probe into the “abhorrent” allegations of his inappropriate behaviour.

Admiral Sir Ben Key acted following allegations regarding the submarine service of the Navy.
