Your Family History
Patricia Mary Albrow
from:13 Mattison Rd, Harringay, London.I was 17 yrs when called into the Land Army and had to go into the dairy division, imagine this londoner seeing her first cow up front and personal and being told to milk it! That was more scary than the air raids I had been through. We worked hard but it was good out in the country and we ate better than most and our dress uniforms looked good. I often had to work the dung detail along with some Italians pows, I was at the bottom of the hea, slinging it up to the pow at the top. He liked opera, so he used to sing while we worked. The day the war ended, my boss came to the shed and told me "Go pack your things and go home" He knewIi had just married a month befor. I am 81 yrs now, living in the states. To all who are still here god bless.
