Your Family History
I am writing on behalf of my mother, Marjorie Envall. She was in the Womens Land Army in the England during the second world war. Her name at that time was Marjorie Eagle and she lived in Northampton. She believes she joined in 1941. Her memory is not as good as it was and she is a little confused about her dates of service. She has many fond memories of that time and is so proud of having been a Land Army Girl. She keeps her land army pictures displayed on her living room wall. I think it would be wonderful if she was to receive a badge to acknowledge her contribution to the war effort. It would be nice if she could be included on your list and perhaps a possibility of contact with someone she worked alongside in what she describes as, " some of the best years of my life". She now resides in Canada, where we have lived since 1957.
