Association of Wrens

Welcome to the Association of Wrens

Welcome to the Website! The Association is open to all former members of the WRNS, WRNR, VAD as well as past and serving women members of the RN, RNR and Commonwealth Navies.

The Association of Wrens was formed in 1920 yet is still relevant today for those who wish to keep in touch with friends and colleagues from service days.

Over 5,500 women members from both the UK and overseas share a unique camaraderie based on their determination that the spirit of the service is kept alive.
