In 2017, the Naval Service celebrated the centenary of the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS), formed in 1917, and recognised the vital contribution made by naval women over the last century.

To mark her close involvement with WRNS100, and her retirement from the Royal Naval Reserve, Commander Jane Allen decided to undertake a solo anti-clockwise charity walk around the coastline of mainland Britain. She estimates it will take a year and cover approximately 5,500 miles.

Jane started from Admiral Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, in Portsmouth on 21 October 2017, and plans to finish there about a year later – hence the title Victory Walk.
