As many of you will know, I’ve created a series to mark the start of every month for several years now. These posts have covered a range of topics: from the intricacies of running the WLA, Land Girls at work, as well as at rest, to 2020’s county focus on Land Girl’s activities.
For 2021, we’ve looked at a photo related to the Women’s Timber Corps every month, to shine on a light on their valuable role in timber production. We started the year exploring how women commemorated their time in the WTC, before moving on to consider how they spent their working and leisure time during the war. The final two posts moved away from representations of women’s experiences in the forests, to look at how their work has been remembered in memorials.
As 2021 draws to a close, browse some of the photos, and do share with me your thoughts on the monthly series too.
