Wartime Wollaston

The Home Guard

Wollaston had its own Home Guard Unit

The Land Girls

Wollaston was a base for the Land Army girls.  There was a Land Army Hostel n York Road.

The Women's Land Army was a British civilian organisation created during World War II so women could work in agriculture, reviving a disbanded World War One organisation and replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the Land Army were commonly known as Land Girls. In effect the Land Army operated to place women with farms that needed workers, the farmers being their employers. They picked crops and did all the jobs that the men would do.

St John's Nurses/Ambulance

The village also supported the St John's organisations
