Your Family History
June Patrica Townsend
Women's Land Army
from:Petersfield, HampshireMy Mother June Patrica Townsend, was born in Petersfield, in Hampshire in June 1929. As a youngster I remember mum showing me a few photo's of her and a few other ladies serving with her standing around what might have been a tractor, but alot of years have passed since then so I could be wrong. I'm sorry to say that I am unable to find any of the photos that mum use to have it might be that they went missing whilst moving from one address to another.
I did not know that the girls in the Land Army were sent off to different parts of the country, I always thought that mum would have been working on one of the farms that were in or near Petersfield. I am not sure but I think mums younger sister may have also been in the Land Army and her name was Zeena Mary Townsend.
After reading about what the girls had to do and some of the conditions that they lived in has been quite a shock, and I have great respect for all they did for the country in time of war, and would like to say thank you to all who served. Mum died in 2006, but I would love to hear from anyone who knew her.
