Hello, along with my two friends I’m trying to solve a mystery surrounding a missing 18thC farming diary that disappeared with an American soldier in WW2. We believe that the land girl working on the farm at the time might be able to help us. We know her name was Margaret and think her surname was Hudson, or a similar sounding name. The farm was Glebe Farm in Sarsden near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, and we know Margaret was there between 1943 and 1944. If anyone can confirm her surname, or help us get in touch with Margaret or her family, we’d be most grateful. We’ve posted a photo of Margaret on our research website which also has a ‘contact us’ link at the top of the page.  Here’s the page: http://www.annehughesdiary.co.uk/photo-margaret.html 

Many thanks
