Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re - Gentle in manner, resolute in deed
The WRAC Association continues to host celebratory events, such as the WAAC/QMAAC Centenary Dinner recently held in Stratford Upon Avon and attended by just under 400 members. Also, we continue to distribute Benevolence through our means-tested grants process. Further information on access to and eligibility for ATS & WRAC Benevolent Fund grants can be found on this website or by calling the WRAC Association office in Winchester.
To celebrate the Association’s legacies we are holding events to mark some important anniversaries. 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), renamed the Queens Mary’s Army Auxiliary Corps (QMAAC) in 1918. The Association Standard was present at the Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall. 2017 also marks 25 years since the disbandment of the WRAC in 1992. 2019 is the 100th anniversary of the Association (initially called the QMAAC Old Comrades Association, later the QMAAC & ATS Comrades Association) and the 70th anniversary of the formation of the WRAC. We are already making plans to hold a function in Guildford Cathedral, which hosts Books of Remembrance and the laid up Standards of the QMAAC and the ATS. These events will remember and honour all those who served in the WAAC, QMAAC, ATS and WRAC and also those women serving today.
Please help us to keep this proud legacy alive. Spread the word and come and join us to be part of our 3,000 strong membership; you will discover old friends and become part of the WRAC Association family.
