The Land Army Women of Bow Street, Ceredigion's picture

About

The Women’s Land Army employed over 200,000 women between June 1939 and November 1950. These women, known as Land Girls, replaced male farm workers who had gone to war.

Coming from all walks of life, Land Girls were critical to increasing the country’s food production. Despite having little to no agricultural experience, they ploughed, grew produce, milked cows, caught rats, drove tractors – and much more.

This collection, belonging to Olwen Davies, is a snapshot of life for the Land Girls in Bow Street, Ceredigion, and the their contribution to the war effort in Wales.
