Very surprised and pleased to see first item is from someone I must know but unfortunetly as result of mini stroke I have problem with memory, however have to admit I'm rubish remembering names anyway. Also pleased to see any mention from someone serving at same time as me. Other places WRAC members seem to come from 1970s ..... I joined 1962 Lingfield then at RAPC Worthy Down, was part of first intake of WRAC staff in RAPO. Then CPO BFPO 40 until I married July 1965 Cpl Tutin. Love to all members of WRAC.

I joined the WRAC with 9 other girls from Liverpool on 10th November 1962. I was from the Wirral and although none of us knew each other we had a long train journey to change that!
I spent over a year at H&D in Epsom, and then went to Worthy Down to train as a Pay clerk. I ended up in 1967 at Mill Hill, and married a "Postie". We spent 13 mostly happy years together before deciding to go our own ways.
I remarried (to a guy I first knew in the RAPC in CPO BAOR in 1964!) and have had 34 very happy years together. We live the good life in Spain, but I miss the comradeship of the WRAC, sadly the cost of flights etc makes attending UK Association events out of the question. My very best wishes to all serving and ex service "lady soldiers" WRAC rules - no matter what they call it!

Hello, I was at Guildford in July 1974, then Deepcut, Larkhill and Netheravon before leaving to get married and have a baby. I would love to hear from Jackie Thomas, Jackie Thompson and Kim Butler (all probably married now and with different names). My name then was Eileen Tuck and Cpl Kelsie always called me Biscuit, can't think why!

I joined the WRAC in 1963 and did my basic training in Guildford. I then went to Aldershot to do my training as a Tech Clerk. I was then posted to Kineton. After that I was posted to 15 BOD Emblem Belgium. During my time I spent time at Donnington. Bicester and Aldershot do various courses. I also loved sport and did various PTI courses in Aldershot. I also played Badminton. It would be great if there was anyone out there who remembers me. Please get in touch. xx
