Watch "Women Farm Workers", 1916

 1916 film of WW1 'Land Girls', the Women's National Land Service Corps who worked on farms around Britain during the First World War to make up for the lack of men who had gone off to join the armed forces. These women from non-farming backgrounds had to learn and adapt to this new lifestyle, and with more and more horses needed for the war effort were also the drivers and users of new machinery such as tractors which were coming into use more and more during the First World War
