Foreword by the Commandant

I am delighted to welcome you to our website and hope that you will find it interesting and informative. Many are astounded when they discover that FANY (Princess Royal’s Volunteer Corps) is still in existence after 105 years, believing that we were disbanded after World War II. That is not the case and the Corps is a vibrant 21st Century organisation. Membership is based on an old fashioned sense of duty, trust, friendship and loyalty. Today, we continue to help others and learn new skills as diverse as supporting TA units in training, advanced first aid and radio communication.

Members are all volunteers who give their time freely to support both Civil and Military authorities within the UK. We are especially proud of our long association with the City of London and those trained members who are on call, 24 hours a day, to the City of London Police Casualty Bureau in times of major emergencies.

With grateful thanks

The re-design of the FANY website has been made possible with a legacy from the Estate of “Dee” Hewlett who was a well loved and much respected member of the Corps. We are extremely grateful to the Executors of her Estate for their financial support.
