Invergordon Wrens

Mrs. E. Moir, who joined the Wrens on 18th September 1939

There was a building called the "Wrenery" on the north side of the High Street between Munro Street and Taylorís garage. I believe it was built as accommodation for WRENS (who, in those days were very much land-based). It was inhabited by WRENS when I was very young but later it was empty. Presumably it was used by female members of the Navy who were stationed at Invergordon to provide support services to the fleet?

My own birth certificate (1948) states residence as Admiralty Houses, High Street, Invergordon which was the old Wrenery.

Yes Bill you are right, there were Wrens living in a large building on the north side of the High Street. I think many of them were in the Signals side of the navy.
