The Army’s first female Personnel Director and a Chelsea Pensioner who served in the WRAC share their experiences as women serving their country.

On the 1st of September the Chelsea Pensioners, in partnership with The Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association for Greater London, proudly led a military Parade down the King’s Road to commemorate Londoners who contributed to the war effort in World War One.
