It was brilliant to see my mum and see the impact each person was bringing to the task force

Able Seaman Charlotte Wood

“I came out for a short break to visit a university friend but found myself on a bit of a working holiday,” Charlotte said.

“I was nervous before I gave my brief to senior officers but it was a great experience as I wish to take the Officer Selection Board.

“It was brilliant to see my mum and see the impact each person was bringing to the task force.”

Both Charlotte and Suzanne are members of HMS President in London.

Suzanne added: “This job has given me a great opportunity to meet and work with colleagues from many other nations.

"I have learnt a huge amount from this deployment and I am pleased to see that we are making a real difference in the region."
