Shirley Smith aged 81 from North London just loves her Ibex scooter from TGA. Having being very active and travelling extensively before marriage and after her husband passed away, she hated being so restricted.
From the age of 18 to 22 she was a Leading Wren Signals in the Royal Navy training at HMS Mercury near Portsmouth. Shirley was then drafted to Whitehall Wireless at the Admiralty before going onto the Royal Naval Air Station Bramcote near Nuneaton in Warwickshire. She was demobbed in 1959 and during the latter years was the Treasurer of the London Branch of the Association of Wrens. Shirley fulfilled this role for many years before it was decommissioned due to the elderly ladies being unable to travel around London.
