Product Description

British Army WRAC Womens Royal Army Corps Wall / Mess Plaque

The Women's Royal Army Corps (WRAC) was a branch of the British Army that existed from 1949 to 1992. It was established to provide a formal structure for women serving in the British Army, allowing them to take on a variety of roles and contribute to the overall military effort. The WRAC was eventually merged into the larger army structure in 1992, and women were fully integrated into all army units.

Here are some key points about the Women's Royal Army Corps:

  1. Formation: The WRAC was formed on February 1, 1949, through the amalgamation of several existing women's military organizations. Its creation marked a significant development in recognizing the contribution of women in the armed forces.

  2. Roles and Responsibilities: Women serving in the WRAC undertook a range of roles, including clerical, medical, communication, intelligence, and administrative duties. While their roles were initially non-combatant, they played a crucial part in supporting the overall functioning of the army.

  3. Training: WRAC recruits underwent training that was specific to their roles, with emphasis on the skills required for their assigned tasks. The training aimed to prepare women for the challenges they might face in their respective positions within the military.

  4. Uniforms: Members of the WRAC wore uniforms distinct from those of their male counterparts, reflecting their unique status within the army. The uniforms were designed to be practical for the roles women were fulfilling.

  5. Integration: In 1992, as part of wider defense restructuring and the move toward greater gender equality in the armed forces, the WRAC was disbanded. This marked the beginning of full integration of women into the regular army units, allowing them to serve alongside men in a wide range of military occupational specialties.
