Great shots of girls of the Women's Land Army collecting in the harvest. Unused / unissued material - location and dates unclear or unknown. Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire. VS of land girls getting in the harvest. They operate tractor drawn reaper over large corn fields probably on Salisbury Plains. The reapers operate in an impressive chain over the large fields. VS of girls taking a well earned rest when the tea van arrives on site. More shots of the reapers working across the field. Short CU of corn waving in breeze. More shots of the tea break. (Neg.) Cataloguer's Note: The Land Girls are part of the WLA - the Women's Land Army - and these are really good shots. Old record suggests date as August 1941 - MD
