Princess Ileana to take naval test

September 30, 1926

Princess Ileana of Roumania has "enrolled as a navigation officer" for examinations, which will be held at Constanza, the AP is reporting.
The Admiralty has already breveted the Princess as "First Helmsman of the Fleet."  She is said to be so "well qualified that she may surpass her masculine competition in the examinations."
She is the "first woman" in Roumanaia to apply for this "test of seamanship."
