FOR 52 years of tireless service to the Royal Naval Association Rita Lock has been awarded an MBE.

The 78-year-old, from Gosport, was recently appointed vice-president of the charity, which works to help current and former Royal Navy personnel.

‘It’s just marvellous to be honoured like this,’ she said. ‘But what we do is very much a team effort.

‘I couldn’t do anything by myself.’
