Description

PANEL DISCUSSION

November 1917 saw the formation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service.

This unique event will bring together women who have served or are currently serving in the naval services, to discuss their experiences, what has changed, and what has stayed the same, since the First World War. There will be an accompanying display of supporting documents from our collection.

The panelists will be:

Ruth Bourne, a Bletchley veteran from the Second World War, will shed light on conditions and roles at the time.

CPO Ann Miller-McCaffrey who has experienced the changes from the late 80s to the present day, and the migration of WRNS and RN .

Lt Cdr Hannah MacKenzie who will share her experience of joining in 2000 and look to the future of women in the Royal Navy.



We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
