Who were the Women’s Land Army?

Great question! The Women’s Land Army was a British civilian organisation created during both World War I and World War II to work in agriculture. As the name suggests, it was made up of mostly women who replaced men called up to the military. Members of the Women’s Land Army helped boost food production by working on farms, cultivating fields, and caring for livestock, playing a crucial role in maintaining the nation’s food supply during the wars.
