About this Item

Original poster. Color lithograph. 30 x 20 inches. This Women's Land Army recruitment poster is comprised of black text and image on a yellow background. It features a pastoral scene with a Women's Land Army worker in a field. She is wearing wearing a brassard with a crown emblem and is filling a trough with hay while a horse and foal begin to eat. The Women's Land Army was established in January 1917 in order to replace men who had left to go to war. By the time it was disbanded in November 1919, 23,000 women had passed through training centers and been recruited to work full-time on the land. Their work was was divided into three strands: Agriculture, Forage and Timber Cutting. The worker in this poster is involved in the WLA's foraging work, that is to say, making hay for horses. Repair to centre margin but otherwise in good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 261470
