In 1918 the first pioneering group of women joined the Royal Naval College as cooks, motor drivers and telephonists, releasing men for sea service. Entering a predominantly male environment, they won the respect of their colleagues despite initial scepticism. During the Second World War and beyond, Greenwich became an important centre for training officers and ran specialised courses for Wren ratings. As the roles open to women expanded, many of the Wrens who trained at Greenwich went on to play a vital part in the war and beyond. Combining photography, film and oral histories, this exhibition explores the changing role of women in the Navy through the lens of the time they spent at Greenwich.
