‘These English Land Army Girls are running and old fashioned steam engine for the threshing on a farm in Kent. There are more than 25,000 girls in Britain’s Land Army now. For they fight in the fields, the girls feel that they must be as tough as commandos, as devoted to duty as the fire-fighter. A great many of them have been working in the shelled and bombed areas, and they pride themselves on being on the job under fire’.
