    The Women's Royal Australian Army Corp (WRAAC) was established on 12 February 1951 to cover a manpower shortage due to the Korean War and national service. Previously women had served in the Australian Women's Army Service (AWAS) during the Second World War from August 1941 until June 1947. The WRAAC Reserve Association (Victoria) was founded in August 1976 with the desire to promote social functions for former members of 8/3 WRAAC Company. In November 2007 the name was changed to WRAAC Association (Victoria) Inc. Women who have or are serving in the Australian Military Forces may join the association to participate in social events, ceremonies and comradeship.
