Volunteer with Legasee
Join us at Legasee in our mission to highlight the remarkable history of the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC).
You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.– Sir Winston Churchill
Women who served in the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC) from its establishment in 1949 to its disbandment in 1992 are being sought for a major new National Lottery-supported educational project which will shine a light on this often-ignored chapter of British military history.
Over the 41 years of its existence, many thousands of women served in the WRAC both at home and in trouble spots abroad, yet despite 59 members being killed in service, many women still don’t see themselves as veterans.
We’re now looking for a team of volunteers to join us in our mission to highlight this remarkable chapter of British military history.
There are a range of opportunities available so if you want to gain valuable experience of working on a multi-agency project, including museums, military institutions, veteran, schools and the charity sector, then please get in touch: email@example.com
