A ROYAL Navy Lieutenant has been honoured by the Queen for her work during the clean up of Typhoon Haiyan.
HMS Daring’s deputy marine engineering officer Wendy Frame was among the first people sent to the Philippines, helping repair vital water wells on the islands.
Lt Frame was presented with an MBE by the Queen at Windsor Castle.
The sailor was praised by her peers for her work on one of the smaller islands, where she and her team provided 200 young families their first taste of clean water for more than a fortnight.
Her team of engineers were instrumental in rebuilding two classrooms destroyed on the island of Guintacan.
Locals were so impressed by the work they asked the team to help with other infrastructure on the island.
Lt Frame said: ‘It was an absolutely amazing experience. I can’t quite believe it.’
