Pauline Milnes joined the Army in 1970 at just 17 years of age. An encounter with recruitment officers at school had left her intrigued and excited about a career in the military.
In these lively art and storytelling workshops, Pauline will be discussing her time in the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC), a career that saw her serving from Guilford to the Nato headquarters in Germany. Michael Gallone will provide a live commentary on the portrait techniques he is using.
Drop in between 11am and 1pm, or between 2pm and 4pm.
These sessions are part of a series which complements our Rise of the Lionesses exhibition and celebrates the role of women in the British Army. Five artists from London Fine Art Studios will paint five inspirational soldiers who have served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) or the WRAC. The portraits will then go on display at the Museum.
