This series of posts charts Dorothy Clayden’s time in the Women’s Land Army form 1942 to 1946. This third looks at Dorothy’s first billet in Shropshire.
We don’t have as many documents on this stage of Dorothy’s journey. However, we do know that Dorothy lived with a couple called Kit and Eva in Shropshire in 1942 to around 1944.
