Welcome to the Association of Wrens
The Association welcomes all who served in the WRNS & WRNR, including those who transferred to the RN & RNR, and all former and serving female ratings and officers. Our Association was established in 1920 by WWI veterans to keep the spirit of the service alive, and that is still our aim.
Here you will find details of forthcoming events, news of past events and Members’ stories as well as information about your nearest Branch or Group. Many social events and meetings are organised throughout the year. Special offers for Members can be found in the Links or on the notice board. Invitations for members to attend national commemorative and sporting events are frequently received. The membership card entitles members to a reduction in the cost of accommodation at the Maritime Club and entrance to HM Dockyard in Portsmouth. A copy of our glossy magazine, The Wren, is sent to every one of our 5000 members in Spring, Summer and Winter. New members always welcome. See us on facebook
The Centenary of the founding of the Women's Royal Naval Service is being celebrated throughout 2017. Details of Events are listed under 'Events' as they are finalised. For more information visit the WRNS100 Website and the list of WRNS100 Events shown in the EVENTS section below.
