The longest serving woman in the history of the Royal Navy has officially retired from active service, following a 34 year career.

Warrant Officer First Class Susan Morgan MBE joined the Wrens in 1978, having left school in East Malling, Kent.

She served on five overseas postings and three ships as a Royal Navy Police Officer.

Retiring at 52, Susan's last appointment was as an investigator of equality and inclusion at the Royal Navy Headquarters in Portsmouth - pioneering work which saw her awarded the MBE in 2010.

She said: “I have had the most incredible career working with inspiring and amazing people."
