A photograph of a Land Girl digging

Woman Carries On.

‘The first batch of recruits to the Women’s Land Army successfully completed their training at the Preston school and are now working on farms in Lancashire. A fresh batch of recruits have taken their place and are enjoying the new life on the land, for many of the girls were typists, shop assistants, etc before the declaration of war. A typical study of a Land Army worker at Preston exemplified the happy spirit of these volunteers.’

7th October 1939
