WRNS recruitment leaflet. The latest National Archives email newsletter announces that the service records of women who served in the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS or 'Wrens') during the First World War are now available online.
This will be pretty exciting news for researchers and family historians as the records were previously only available on microfiche.
What else? The Royal Naval Museum has a WRNS research guide, and you might not have seen our WRNS item of the month, focusing on the HMS Dauntless manuscript collection.
