Foreword by the Vice President of the WRAC Association
I am thrilled to be the Vice President of the WRAC Association and to welcome you to our website. The website is now firmly established as an important means of communication with both our existing members and those who we hope will join in the future. Whether you have served or indeed are still serving, I hope that you will have a look at the website and join our thriving association.
The WRAC Association celebrates two important anniversaries in the next five years. The first of these is in 2017 which marks the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), re-named the Queens Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps (QMAAC) in 1918. We will mark this anniversary with a celebration event and hope to have the Association Standard present at the Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall. The second is the 100th anniversary of the WRAC Association in 2019, we are already making plans to hold a centenary dinner in Guildford Cathedral which hosts a commemorative window, a cabinet containing Books of Remembrance and the laid up Standards of the QMAAC and the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS). These events will remember and honour all those who have served in the WAAC, the QMAAC, the ATS and the WRAC and also those women serving today.
We are extremely proud of the WRAC Association's legacy and of those women still serving. Please help us to keep this legacy alive and join us.
