Barbara McGregor

 I joined the WRNS in July 1977 as a Wren Radio Operator, became a Regulator in 1981 serving for 22 years after which I joined the RN Careers Service leaving in January 2021. I am honoured to be recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the longest serving female of the UK Armed Forces. Serving worldwide I did not volunteer for the sea but believe if I had my time over again I certainly would. During WRNS100 I organised the successful Wrens Walking Wales event and in 2018 started the Wrens Out Walking where we now have over 300 active members. Having been a trustee for 5 years I am due to step down in 2022 but will continue walking to bring former Wrens together.
