MBE for WO Pulley

Huge congratulation to Warrant Officer Natasha Pulley who last week was presented with her MBE by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

WO Pulley heads up the PT department at HMS Raleigh and her award recognises her extensive voluntary work along, her selfless determination, loyalty and drive during her career spanning five decades.

She joined the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) in 1987 as a radar operator. WO Pulley passed her PT aptitude test two years later and completed her PT qualifying course at HMS Temeraire in 1990. Since then she has served all over the UK, including two postings to the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose.

WO Pulley has represented the Navy at cross country, athletics and has also taken part in the Royal Navy’s annual Field Gun Competition. She became the first female member to run in the event in 1990. To continue her Field Gun journey, she became the first female to take charge of a crew as ‘number one’ trainer, leading HMS Raleigh to success in 2015.

Throughout her career WO Pulley has raised money and supported numerous charities. She has generously given up her time to benefit Service children, local schools, the homeless and the elderly in the region.
