Details

It was 1942 and Britain was running out of food. Twenty-year-old Irene Gibbs had always fancied working on the land rather than in the cigarette factory so she volunteered for the Women’s Land Army. She and her new friends were high-spirited and adventurous. They took in their stride all kinds of farm work, encounters with farm animals and farmers, the army on manoeuvres and the US airforce, not to mention hitch-hiking, wall-climbing and some long-suffering hostel wardens.

These fresh and entertaining memories paint a picture of a very different world. Although the dangers of war were never far away, a gang of girls who missed the last train home would always find a safe refuge in which to spend the night.
