Royal Navy sailor named top armed forces chef

A Royal Navy sailor who spiced up menus on patrol around the world has been named top chef in the armed forces.

Petty Officer Daryl Hall was awarded Armed Forces Caterer of the Year after he treated the 220-strong crew of HMS Richmond to fine dining and world cuisine despite the challenges of cooking and restocking a warship at sea during a 2015 deployment to the Gulf and Mediterranean.

The 30-year-old from Plymouth was nominated for his hard work during the ship’s nine month deployment on on counter-drugs and counter-piracy operations.

Hi, I'm Jack Nicholson, but not the one you're probably thinking of right now. I first joined the Royal Navy in 1997 after working in medicine, becoming a medic. I spent 12 years in the ranks and during this time I served in 3 different ships, met a lot of people and experienced even more than I could have dreamed; eventually commissioning as Medical Service Officer. My work has taken me to places far and wide, such as Afghanistan. I enjoy spending my time raising money for charities which help injured war veterans, as this is obviously very close to my heart after seeing so many of my friends go through traumatic ordeals. One of my favourite hobbies is reading, I really enjoy reading non-fiction books in my spare time
