Our speaker is Helen Frost “The Women’s Land Army in Northamptonshire during the First World War”.
Helen Frost is a lecturer in Literacy and Adult Support. Her passion, however, outside of work is the legacy of the Great War. For several years she has researched in depth the often forgotten, largely overlooked and for the most part unknown Women’s Land Army. She has also focussed on the role and contribution that her home county of Northamptonshire made with its own Women’s Land Army. The story is inspirational and can encourage people generally to see what can be achieved and what is possible even if it is something that has not been attempted or done before. Helen is also a member of the Western Front Association, a charitable organisation which perpetuates the memory, courage and companionship of those who took part in the Great War in whatever capacity.
