    52. ARMY GIRLS: FORMER WWII FANY JOYCE WILDING

    Commemorating the 80th anniversary of conscription for women, with a special nod to fellow Army Girl and driver HM Queen Elizabeth in her Jubilee year, 98-year-old Joyce Wilding will explain how, aged eighteen, she joined the elite First Aid Nursing Yeomanry and became an SOE assistant and later a corporal and driver. Dr Tessa Dunlop will help locate her story in the broader wartime context when thinking on women in the military was overturned, with girls as young as seventeen serving King and country in uniform.
