Highlights this half term include a brand new exhibition ‘Women and the Royal Navy: Pioneers to Professionals’ which tells the incredible 250-year long story of women working in the Naval Service. Tales of cross-dressing as male sailors and living secret lives is just one part of this fascinating story. The exhibition opens in the centenary year of the Woman’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) formation and is a superb taster of women’s vital role in defending our shores.
