I served in the WRNS/RN from 1985 to 2014 as a writer. During that time I volunteered to go to sea when given the opportunity. I had many wonderful drafts including three foreigns in Hong Kong, Naples and Lisbon as well as three ships HMS Invincible, HMS Portland and HMS Chatham, I thoroughly enjoyed my service. Since leaving I have worked in Data Protection. I am a member of a branch and two informal groups.
