During the First World War there was a shortage
of men so ladies took their place. They were called 'Land Army Girls'
The land girls uniform was free and consisted of a smock, breeches,
boots, leggings, jersey, mackintosh and a hat. Her pay was 18/-
or more a week, whereas before the war a male agricultural worker
got 14/-. The girls spent six weeks training at an agricultural
center or farm and then joined their ‘section’. Not
sure where this picture was taken.
