Summary

The Australian Women's Land Army, Queensland Division, was established in July 1942, to help 'fight on the food front.' Queensland women comprised almost one quarter of the nation's enlistees for war on this front. At its peak, 3,000 women were members of the Australian Women's Land Army, 700 of who came from Queensland.
