Irene Hulatt nee Wright was one of many former land girls who, at the end of their Second World War service in the Land Army, decided to get married. Some of them who wished to were able to attend a Homecraft Training Centre near Bury St Edmunds where they received a month’s training in domestic skills, free of charge, thanks to the Women’s Land Army Benevolent Fund. Her husband must have been delighted that she was judged ‘A very promising housewife’.   Provided by Mrs I. Hulatt. Courtesy of Stuart Antrobus
