Your Family History
Edith Maud "Eda" Griffiths
Womens Land Army
from:Blaina, South WalesMy Mum served in the Women's Land Army at the end of WW2. She was 17 when she joined and 21 when she left. She first worked at Brockington Grange, Bredenbury, Near Hereford. She later moved to Sutton St Nicolas and stayed at "Rock Cottage" with Ivy and Stan Rock. Mum said she payed £7 a week to lodge there. She says it was a beautiful cottage, with a little wooden gate and lattice windows. She stated there was a sign on the gate which just said "Rock".
Mum is now 86 years old and my daughter is currently working on a project about WWII and we are using my mum's memories of her Land Army days as a chapter in the project. She has told us some lovely stories. It would be lovely to hear from anyone who knew her
