...History of the Women’s Royal Naval Service

70 Years of Trust looks back at the charity's history and its work over the last 7 decades. It contains dozens of rare photographs of former Wrens at work and at play donated by its 50,000 current members.

HRH The Princess Royal has written the foreword to the book writing about the success and achievements of the Trust.

She writes: "Every woman who served in the WRNS is a member of the Benevolent Trust and over the last 70 years the Trust has cared for its own by helping thousands of women with regular or individual grants; last year we distributed £350,000, a huge achievement."

"The Trust has been highly successful and continues to be relevant because it has evolved its policies and practices to meet different times and the changing needs of its beneficiaries."

Money raised by the book will enable the Trust to continue helping those in need, promote awareness of the charity to the many former Wrens who don't know that there is assistance available and be a fitting record of its work over the past 70 years.
