Speaker: Imogen Corrigan: Put that Light Out! The Story of the 93rd (Searchlight) Regiment, Royal Artillery
This story of a remarkable and little known regiment, is one of the best kept secrets of British military history. Very few realise that it was the first all-female regiment (with the exception of the Commanding Officer and Battery Commanders) and the only time in the world so far, that women have been deployed on active duty as a regiment. They served their country throughout the war, keeping the population safe from enemy aircraft attack, overcoming opposition and prejudice and risking their lives every night to keep the population safe. Several died on duty and although they received medals for their bravery, proper recognition of their contribution is long overdue.
