Summary

The WRANS sub section of the Naval Association of Australia (South Australian Branch) was established in 1954. A group of ex-Women's Royal Australian Naval Service (WRANS) joined together to support one another after their World War II service. 50 years later they still hold monthly meetings and various social functions. They go to the Dawn Service and march on Anzac Day as well as attend the Rembrance Day Service. During Navy week the Association supports their naval family by attending the church and Memorial Garden services. Also they are present at sister service functions plus the Bangka Day Memorial Service. In addition to attending Naval Cadet functions the WRANS also give financial support to the cadets.
