WESC and the WRANS

The Women's Emergency Signalling Corps (WESC) was established by Mrs Florence Violet McKenzie ("Mrs. Mac") in 1939. The WESC was a civilian voluntary organisation which offered free training in telegraphic and visual signalling for recruits wishing to enter the defence forces and the Merchant Navy.

"Mrs Mac" and 14 ladies from the WESC were the nucleus for the formation of the Women's Royal Australian Naval Service (WRANS) in April 1941.
