WWII Ships WRENS

At a naval base in Wales is a section of Wrens who really are sailors of the Royal Navy Manning a motor launch without any aid from the were male, they are the first members of the service whose work has taken them considerable distances out to sea. Their job is to run out to fighting ships lying in the deep waters, sometimes many miles from land, and to Perry Naval officers to or from the shore base. They are drawn from widely varying peacetime occupations one is an ex-typist, another a chauffouses, while a third came straight from school, but they are now all expert “seamen” and consider themselves the luckiest Wrens in the service.
