Shared Learning Project – The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich 100 Years of the WRNS

The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich

As part of the national celebrations to mark 100 years since the formation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service, the Old Royal Naval College will be hosting an exhibition focusing on the WRNS in Greenwich.  We are looking for U3A volunteers to work collaboratively with ORNC staff and former personnel from the Greenwich WRNS to develop the exhibition as part of this Shared Learning Project.

Meetings will take place fortnightly at the Old Royal Naval College; starting on Wednesday 28thSeptember at 11.a.m.

The minimum time for each meeting will be 2 hours, but if members wish to stay longer they will be very welcome.  The expectation is that between meetings members of the team will carry out their own research to feed back at the fortnightly meetings.

To start with we are looking for volunteers who can make a 6, 10 or 12 week commitment with the opportunity to continue until the summer 2017. We are looking for people who have an interest in:



Interviewing (people with experience in conducting and recording oral histories)

Opportunities for research include:

  • The ORNC archives
  • To interview people who lived and studied at Greenwich
  • The National Maritime Museum archives
  • The Imperial War Museum archives

If you are interested in joining this project, please contact Linda Crook at for an application form by 31st August 2016
