World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


Norma Frances Taylor

Women's Land Army

Our mum Norma Taylor" was based at Instow Devon, the stories she told of her times were of a great time that she enjoyed with the rest of the girls even though the war was a stark reminder of why they were working away from home. She didnít have a good family life at that time and when she joined the land army it was like a new life. The farming community was a good one for her personally, she loved those times so much. After she passed away we found a diary of her times and it made good reading of the times you girls all had. We have found a list off some of her friends at that time and if you are one of them, Iím thanking you for that and the times you had together
