WRANS Qld, a sub-section of the Naval Assoc. of Aust., is an organization of ex navy women formed to bring together old shipmates. We welcome Ex WRANS and ex RAN ladies, and girls who are still serving in the RAN or RANR. Our membership Qld wide is approximately 300.
We are having our Annual Reunion Luncheon at the United Services Club at 183 Wickham Terrace Brisbane at 11 am on Saturday November 6 (cost $50) and you are most welcome to attend even if you are not a member yet. The venue is within walking distance of Central Station or there is parking at the rear of the club entering off Upper Edward Street.
We want to encourage all ex Navy girls we can get in touch with to join us. It is a chance to maybe meet up with some girls you served with, and to meet others who have similar experiences to yourself. The luncheon is open to all ex WRANS and girls from the RAN/RANR past and present, so if you would like to bring an ex-Navy girlfriend along as well that would be great. We will need to advise caterers of numbers, so contact me at the contact numbers/addresses below ASAP if you would like to go – you would be most welcome.
If you join WRANS Qld (annual fee $25) you would get all mail outs, our newsletters which come out three to four monthly and have all the dates for these sorts of reunions, social gatherings and other functions and information on memorial services and marches. Meetings are held at Newmarket, Brisbane at 1.30 pm on the second Sunday of each month followed by afternoon tea and chat. Membership of WRANS Qld gives one membership of the Naval Association and entitlement to The White Ensign, which is the official magazine of the Association.
Please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have or any further information that you may need.
