Petty Officer Emily McCullough from the Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service is up for the outstanding Marine or Sailor award after a tour in Afghanistan:

"It's such an overwhelming experience. The job I do, I absolutely love, and to be able to recognised for doing something you love is quite unusual.

"Obviously, there's hundreds of other people that could be recognised in the same position, I'm more than aware of that, but I just feel very special and lucky to have been picked out."
