Do you have any Wrens in your family?
I’m not referring to the tiny, feathered variety in the garden but the indomitable ladies who joined the Women’s Royal Naval Service. Specifically, ladies who joined up between 1946 and 1981 and did their basic training at Training Depot Burghfield, HMTE Burghfield, HMTE Dauntless or HMS Dauntless/Reading.
Dauntless Divisional Photos is a nationwide project, in collaboration with the Association of Wrens, to gather divisional photographs and memories from those training days, but also to reunite ladies with old friends, share anecdotes and relive exciting moments.
So if you, your mum, granny, aunt, godmother or even your next door neighbour donned a blue suit and aimed for a life on the ocean wave, please get in touch on either firstname.lastname@example.org or 07765 435295 / 0771 990 9844.
