Jessica 'Gap Girl' Bird is a fictional television character portrayed by Danielle Horvat. She replaced Billy "Spider" Webb doing his Boatswain's Mate duties onboard HMAS Hammersley while doing her Gap Year in the RAN (Hence, partly at least, her nickname "Gap Girl" -- though she's usually just called "Bird"). Her first appearance was the first episode of Season 4. Jessica Bird is a young Navy sailor on HMAS Hammersley, after finishing high school she decided to sign up for a gap year on Navy patrol boat. Dutchy and the crew keep her under their wings. Bird is a favourite of the crew to be played pranks on - particularly by 2Dads (Kosov-Meyer).[1] In series five, Bird becomes Hammersley's chef after Bomber leaves Hammersley after her affair with 2Dads.

Maxine 'Knocker' White[edit]

Commander Maxine 'Knocker' White, played by Tammy MacIntosh in Series 4 and 5, is the shore-based Squadron Commander, over HMAS and some other patrol craft in her area of command. She is the immediate superior to the HMAS Hammersley's Commanding Officer ("CO") Mike Flynn -- and his ex-wife. She has re-married, to a man named Stewart White, and had a son, Ryan, who later becomes a naval cadet aboard the HMAS Hammersley. Towards the end of the series, it becomes apparent that there is a more complicated relationship among these four characters, and the conclusion is dramatic.

Ryan White[edit]

Midshipman Ryan White, a naval cadet, played by Dominic Deutscher, takes his orientation cruise aboard the HMAS Hammersley -- apparently by the arrangement of his mother, the Hammersley's Squadron Commander, Commander Maxine 'Knocker' White -- ex-wife of the Hammersley's CO Mike Flynn. Though White is long-divorced from Flynn, and Ryan is apparently her son by a second husband (Stewart White), the relationship between Ryan and CO Flynn grows increasingly complex and serious as the final season progresses, and ends dramatically. Along the way, Ryan's adventures and crew relations are complicated by his semi-official standing as crew, by his internal coming-of-age crises, and his past, particularly by his relationship to the boatswain/chef, Jessica 'Gap Girl' Bird, with whom he had a relationship before his assignment to Hammersley.
