A ROYAL Navy officer has become one of the latest to complete an officer’s course at HMS Collingwood in Fareham.

Lieutenant Kate Borland, 24, from Portsmouth, has just completed her initial warfare officers course at the Maritime Warfare School at the naval base.

Her next step will be to navigate a Sandown-class minehunter from Faslane.

Lt Borland said: ‘I’m really looking forward to commencing my first job navigating one of the Sandown-class minehunters from Faslane. This will be a fantastic first job.

‘The responsibility and ability to put into action all I have learnt to date was the reason I joined the navy.’

Lt Borland joined the Royal Navy in 2011 and has since served on HMS Lancaster for a deployment to the Caribbean. She is an ex-student of Havant College.
