Recognising The First AGM

At the end of WWI, when the Women’s Royal Naval Service was disbanded, there was a need to administer the large amount of money granted to ex-service women by the Navy & Army Canteen Board. This led to the Service Women’s Fund Committee being established in 1920. The WRNS Friendly Association, first renamed the Society of Wrens and finally named the Association of Wrens, was formally set up on 20th November that year, with Dame Katharine Furse as President.
