Members of the First World War Womens Land Army and local dignitaries, Tregavethan Farm, Truro, Cornwall. Friday 11th May 1917

Nine members of the Women's Land Army standing on the lawn listening to Viscountess Falmouth during an official visit at Tregavethan Farm, a Women's Land Army training centre. Also included are Lady Ingeborg Molesworth-St Aubyn, Miss Henderson, Mr W. Hawk, and Mr F.H. Hoskin (or Mr E.H. Hosken). Mr Hawk was chairman of the Cornwall Agricultural Committee. Mr and Mrs Alfred Martin, owners of Tregavethan, are also in the picture together with Tregavethan's matron Mrs Young. The photograph was published in the West Briton on 17th May 1917 with the caption "Women's Farm Work - Tregavethan, near Truro, the farm occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Martin, has been made one of the training centres for women workers under the National Service Scheme, and there is no doubt that under the instruction of Mr. and Mrs. Martin the nine girls at Tregavethan are becoming keenly interested in their work. They are nine bright, healthy looking girls - a medical test has to be passed before they undertaken their work - and life in the open air is certainly proving beneficial to them. Their dress is very serviceable; a light khaki coloured coat falls loosely over breeches made of hard wearing material, and their high top boots with hobnails are eminently suitable."

Elderly woman in a shop displaying eggs collected to feed wounded soldiers. There is a sign appealing for donations : Our wounded sorely need your aid! Will you help. The National Egg Collection for the Wounded campaign started in August 1915, aiming to collect 1 million eggs for the wounded. The scheme was so successful that they achieved 1 million eggs a month.
