My mum comes from the Lake District but moved with the Women’s Land Army from Cumbria to Hertfordshire. My mum joined the land army in the Lake District on 1.7.1941 and transferred in 1946 to Hertfordshire. She resigned from the Land army in 1947.

Elisabeth is searching for her mother’s friend, Beryl Head. Read more about her search here.
