Land Girl, Eileen Joan Berry, feature on BBC Heir Hunters
In December 2015, I had the great pleasure of participating in an interview for a feature on the Women’s Land Army for BBC Heir Hunters. The team tracked down Eileen Joan Berry, a Land Girl who worked in Warwickshire during the Second World War. As part of the team’s research into her family, I discussed the type of work women undertook and how Eileen’s work on the land was a complete change from her pre-war occupation as a invoice clerk. Following the war Eileen married William Jackson Jones in 1946.
