    Just a pity it wasnt done 30-40 years ago when more of them still survived

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    I'm not sure about that, a couple out of 200 isn't a bad survival rate? I wonder if there's a survey of what's left?

    What has also been kept to some extent are the photographic and written evidence and oral histories.

    Apropos of nothing, I studied the home front of WW1 and WW2. The agricultural labour of WW1 is perhaps more interesting

    Sorry, I meant that there were more surviving Land Girls, not the Hostels
