Book Description

Winifred Phillips was born in Ilford, Essex, in 1926, one of four children. Sent to a convent boarding school, which she loathed, she trained as a nursery nurse and met George Wheeler, a 19-year-old RAF trainee wireless operator.

The Vice-President, Council and members of The Women's Royal Army Corps Association (incorporating Queen Mary's Auxiliary Army Corps and Auxiliary Territorial Service Comrades' Association) send loyal greetings to their President, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Kent, on the occasion of her 80th birthday on 22 February 2013.

We've been hard at work progressing the WRAC Association website, and as you can see, we've now launched the next version.

The launch of the new WRAC Association website coincides with the 62nd anniversary of the formation of the WRAC.
