A Dereham resident has successfully completed an intensive training course and been formally commissioned as a Royal Navy Officer.

Helena Fox, 24, completed a 30-week course, which primarily took place at the Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth and included a six-week stretch on board the assault ship HMS Ocean.

The completion of her training was celebrated by a passing-out parade at the college.

With the completion of her training Ms Fox will now join HMS Raleigh to begin specialised training as a logistics officer.

She said: “It’s strange to think how much we’ve all done and accomplished in that time. It was an intensive, fast-paced program with ups and downs, but ultimately it was a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

“The focus now has shifted onto life after Dartmouth, and I cannot wait to begin my specialist branch training.”
