Women’s Land Army T Mitchell Metal Wall Art (4 Sizes)

The Women’s Land Army (WLA), a British civilian organisation created during the First and Second World Wars. Women worked in agriculture replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the WLA were commonly known as Land Girls.

As the prospect of war became increasingly likely, the government wanted to increase the amount of food grown within Britain. In order to grow more food, more help was needed on the farms. As a result, the government started the Women’s Land Army in June 1939. The majority of the Land Girls already lived in the countryside. However, more than a third came from London and the industrial cities of the north of England. In the Second World War, though under the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, it was given an honorary head – Lady Denman. At first it asked for volunteers. In addition to this,  supplementation by conscription increased numbers. By 1944 it had over 80,000 members. The WLA lasted until its official disbandment on October 21, 1950.

This classic recruitment advertising poster is reproduced on a metal sign. Perfect for all enthusiasts! Trevor Mitchell’s artwork also helps to make this an ideal decorator’s piece for all nostalgic homes.
