Second World War Women's Land Army recruitment poster. The poster depicts a smiling 'land girl' driving a red tractor. In the background is an idealised rural scene of a farmhouse and rolling hills. The title text is superimposed over this in the top half in red and blue ink. The Women's Land Army (WLA) was formed during the Second World War to combat rising labour shortages in the farming sector.
