Your Family History
Womens Land Army
from:Lime Rd, BristolRosemary Reeves, my mother, left WD & HO Wills in Bristol to sign up for the Land Army. She spoke very little about it since but I think she was based somewhere in South Glos. She seems to have enjoyed it until she had an unhappy experience at the farm where she lived (having to barricade her door at night) and left with what sounded like a nervous breakdown. She went to stay with a friend at Portishead to recover and met her future husband who lived next door.
I would be interested to know anything about her time in the Land Army (both happy & sad), the location, etc. and any photographs that might be a available. All I have of hers from this time is a certificate and a badge. She went on to live a full life until she died aged 84 in 1998.
