Fanny and Amy | International Women's Day

Extraordinary

Fanny, who helped plot the D-Day landings meets Amy, a serving Royal Navy engineer

Fanny and Amy

Between them, Fanny and Amy span 8 decades of Royal Naval service.

Here, they discuss how the roles of women and attitudes towards them in the Royal Navy have evolved through the years. But one thing absolutely shines through, no matter what year, during wartime or peacetime, women are absolutely vital to our armed forces.  

WITHOUT US, EVERYTHING WOULD HAVE FALLEN TO PIECES
