Your Family History
Women's Land Army
from:Battersea, LondonI heard only a short time ago of this internet site and I am wondering if any of my friends and workmates have also been in touch with you. I was in the W.L.A. from the 10th of August 1942 until the 19th of January 1946. I lived at the Land Army Hostel in Little Hadham in Hertfordshire (Little Hadham Place).
After leaving the Land Army I returned to my office work at Prices Candle Company in Battersea and in 1947 married my boyfriend who as a member of the Dutch Royal Navy had served during the war years with the British Navy. In 1949 we moved away to live in Holland where we are still living. I'm sorry to say I then lost touch with my wartime friends, but I suppose we were all busy building up our new way of life and bringing up our children.
I often look back though to the years at Little Hadham and I hope to hold a little bit of contact with W.L.A. My maiden name was Joyce Burt.
