Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re - Gentle in manner, resolute in deed
Welcome to The WRAC Association website. Whether you have served or, indeed, are still serving, I hope that you will have a look at this website and join our thriving association.
We are living in strange and challenging times and I believe this is when the WRAC Association can provide real and consistent support to all our members and to the wider female serving and veteran community. Since we have all been in lockdown due to COVID 19, we have been able to set up a buddy buddy scheme, based on our Branch network, which has alleviated feelings of isolation and provided low level practical assistance. I have been amazed by the willingness of our members to help where they can and maintain their branch meetings by utilising such applications as Zoom or Houseparty.
The celebrations for VE Day this year were an opportunity to publicise and celebrate the experiences of our elder members who served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS). These pioneers set the foundations for those of us who followed and their contribution to the war effort cannot be underestimated. We will continue to celebrate all women who have served and are serving in the Army throughout the decades.
The heart of our Association continues to be our members and we have a network of 52 branches across the UK and overseas. You will see in the Gallery on this website the many and varied activities that our members participate in from the annual 10kms Run to the Remembrance weekend in London. There are events to suit all whether you are a Branch member or not and in addition, there are thriving communities on various social media sites. As a member of the WRAC Association, you will receive two copies of our journal, Lioness, a year, be able to attend national subsidised events and have access to your Branch’s events and activities. You will also be able to apply for a benevolence grant from our Benevolence Funds, should you fall on hard times, as long as you enlisted in the Army prior to 1992.
Please have a look at our website. Spread the word and come and join us to be part of our 3,000 strong membership; you will discover old friends, make new friends, be able to share your military experiences and become part of the WRAC Association family.
