A Chesterfield sailor has graduated as a warfare specialist from HMS Collingwood in Hampshire.

Now he has completed his training, Able Seaman Conor Lovell, 19, will join HMS Bulwark.

The former Chesterfield College student, whose proud parents Debbie and Ian still live in the town, said: “Everyday presents a different challenge but presents a sense of job satisfaction like no other.

“I look forward to going to sea for the first time and seeing different places around the world.”

During his warfare specialist training, Conor learned how to set up and operate the Royal Navy’s systems which provide information to ships on air and surface activities.
