Megan Moir was a Wren Writer onboard the exercise training ship HMS Philante. Originally the millionaire Sir Tommy Sopwith’s private yacht it was donated to the RN by the Norwegians and was used to direct exercises to ships learning the art of U-boat evasion. It’s a fascinating account from one of the few WRENs fortunate to serve at sea during the war.
