ROYAL BRITISH LEGION WOMEN AT WAR 100 EVENT
FRIDAY 7TH JULY AT THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARBORETUM
On Friday 7th July 2017 The Royal British Legion will mark the centenary of the formal recognition of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), the first time women were fully enrolled in the UK Armed Forces, by holding a Drumhead Ceremony and Reception at The National Memorial Arboretum. This event will more widely commemorate the contribution of ALL women who have served the Crown, on operation, or in uniform. We have been invited to contribute a Timeline of important dates for women serving in the WRNS and Royal Navy for a wide audience.
Guests will need to be seated by 11.30 for the Drumhead Ceremony, which will be followed by a Reception. The Association of Wrens have been allocated 40 places so if any member would like to attend this event, please let me have your name and email address.
Carol Gibbon, Chairman.
