Miss M.L.McClary Women's Land Army Card


Miss M.L.McClary Women’s Land Army Card

The Rev’d Martin Flowerdew

I recently found the membership card for Miss M.L.McClary No. 38292 in a secondhand book I purchased. It would be good to reunite it with her [outside chance I admit] or her family. It was signed by Lady Denman and Cecily Cornwallis, dated 24.5.41.

Update 10th May 2015:

Information from WLA card:

  • Miss Maud Lilian McClary lived at 244, Rangefield Road, Bromley, Kent
  • Worked in West Kent
  • Occupation before joining WLA: shop assistant
  • Joined the WLA when she was 21 in 19 Feb 1941
  • Resigned 30 Nov 1942 (presumably to become Mrs Baker)
  • Re-instated (perhaps husband was serving abroad and she missed the camaraderie of the land girls?) 27 January 1945.
  • Left WLA for ‘health Reasons’ 4 March 1943.

Update 24th April 2015: Cecily Cornwallis was the County Chairmen for Kent, therefore Miss M.L.McClary would have worked in Kent during her time as a Land Girl.
