Video: WW1 Oxfordshire WLA Recruiting March
Recruiting march and presentation to Princess Mary of the Women’s Land Army, Oxford, 1917-1918.
The march begins in St Giles with women entering the enrolment hut by the Martyrs’ Memorial.
The procession goes down the Cornmarket, through Carfax and into Broad Street. Some of the women are in uniform, and the procession includes a steam tractor.
Mr R E Prothero, Minister of Agriculture, leads local city and university officials to Trinity College gardens, where Princess Mary presents awards to the Land Girls. One of the girls shows two baby lambs.
The awards continue while the members of the council and the university, one in a Bath chair, watch.
