Summary

At the end of the World War II, surplus funds were divided between the different state Women's Land Army groups. New South Wales was allocated 500 pounds. A group of 'girls' who had worked at the New South Wales Australian Women's Land Army Headquarters, established a committee. Aileen Lynch former AWLA superindent in NSW suggested that the money be placed in an account which would be used to establish a club to further the interests of all ex-members of the AWLA in welfare, training and advisory capacity. The club was to have a city base where the girls could continue their wartime friendship and arrange return visits to the country centres where they had worked. [1]
