ANGLIAN ex-landgirls have appealed for help to trace a banner which, they believe, may have been mistakenly sold at a Fenland car boot sale.

The green and yellow canvas banner promotes the Ex-Women’s Land Army Anglia branch and was made by a late member.

Frieda Feetham, a former land girl from Lower Tasburgh, Norfolk, said: “Unfortunately this is missing and we understand it may have been inadvertently mixed with car boot stock in the March area.

“Can any of your readers please help a party of ‘old biddies’ (all over 80 years of age) regarding the present whereabouts of our treasured banner?”

The Women’s Land Army was a civilian organisation created during the First and Second World Wars to work in agriculture, replacing men called up to the military.
