Like thousands of others, Anne Hall volunteered to join the Women's Land Army following the outbreak of World War II. She felt that to do so would be to make her most effective contribution to the war effort - and she had always hankered after work on a farm. Her father predicted she would last six weeks but, in the event, Anne stuck it for the duration of the war and beyond - six years in all. In this book, Anne Hall presents an account of that never-to-be-forgotten period of her life. The reader follows her to farms in Herefordshire, to the Sparsholt Farm Institute in Hampshire and then to a number of postings where the occasional lack of mod-cons was generally compensated for by the warmth of the welcome, though not all farmers were so impressed and mishaps were not unknown. After three years, Anne, though still only 23 years old, was offered a job as trainee forewoman in Wiltshire. She was then sent to organize two Agricultural Camps visited by a different set of volunteers each week. When the war ended Anne remained in the WLA and took up a new job on a farm in Essex. But once the emergency was over, something was missing and she eventually returned to her pre-war career in medical social work.
