Walking through the old parts of the city of Portsmouth took us by the cathedral. In the grounds there was a memorial to the Women’s Royal Naval Service. Known more commonly as the Wrens, this was the branch of the Navy for the women before everything became more integrated. The top of the memorial is the various types of hats that Wrens wore in service. My gran was a Wren in the war and made friends in the service that stayed with her for the rest of her life. She would go to many reunions.
