Helen (third left) served as a Wren and was stationed at Greenock on the Clyde, where she cooked thousands of meals for fellow service personnel.

Although Helen’s husband Jasper was awarded his medals many years ago, like other Wrens, Helen has only received hers recently.

She is very proud to have her medal ready to wear in time for Remembrance Day.

Helen was presented with her medal by Les Braby, ex warrant officer Scots Guards, who welcomed the opportunity to recognise her service and that of all Wrens who sadly never received their medals in their own lifetimes.
