Recruiting leaflet for the Australian Women's Land Army which was created in 1942. It was only after the Fall of Singapore in 1942, when the threat of invasion became a possibility, that the Manpower authority was established to direct and co-ordinate all labour resources. The Australian Women's Land Army was established to help provide food, as Australia was viewed as a supply depot for troops stationed in Queensland.
