|The success of the WFC (Women's Forage Corps) which had released men for Military service was extended to other Agricultural work. The Women's land army was formed from women volunteers, often they were town or city girls with no farming experience.
Photographs of First World War Land Army girls can be distinguished from those of the Second World war by the overall they wore.
The "cowcoat" style overall usually has a cloth belt with two buttons similar to many munition worker's tunics. Usually made from white material for girls mainly employed in dairy work or beige if the woman was employed on more general farm duties.
