Scope and content

Hilda Kent joined the Women's Land Army in Witney. After she retired she used to make a display in the foyer of the Bush Club every Wednesday and it was something everyone looked forward to seeing. One week she did one about her Land Army work in Witney showing ladies being taught how to milk cows and cool the milk. The pictures also show the final march past in front of Queen Elizabeth (later known as the Queen Mother) in London when the Land Army was disbanded.
