 “Go forth pioneers” instructed the first Director of the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) to her recruits.  The establishment of the WRNS, one hundred years ago today, was a watershed moment which ultimately led to the integrated service we have today.  Highlighting the impact of women from the First World War to the present, Victoria Ingles, from the National Museum of the Royal Navy, also reveals stories of women’s involvement with the Navy from the age of sail.

This is a free event but because spaces are limited booking is recommended.

This event will take place in the Ulster Museum Lecture Theatre.
