WW2 Allied Items
Here is an Overall Drill Coat for a Women's Land Army member. It has the broad arrow mark, dated 1944, size Large (bust 39" to 42") by A. Learner & Son. It is in near mint condition, complete with belt and all buttons. It is made of a heavy cotton material and looks great. The W.L.A. was reformed in 1938 to train women in agricultural work, which then allowed more men to enter combat. Most were young women from towns and cities.
