Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

This makes me even more keen to create a new WLA impression so I'll be working on that!

In the meantime, I shall donate and seek out some more ways of helping with fundraising, etc.

Interesting that some years ago, groups were able to find Lottery funding http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/4211820.stm which is unlikely now.

In Scotland, there already seems to be some pace on their memorial backed by NFU Scotland. http://business.scotsman.com/business/Women39s-Land-Army-to-.6097602.jp

Does anyone know if the WLA Tribute are in touch with the NFU and similar bodies in their fundraising?

From memory the scottish memorial is dedicated more to the timber corps rather than the land army in general. Either way these ladies seem to be getting forgotten more and more. Will have to see what I can do to change that.

I am sure they are doing all they can with all their contacts and I just wondered if the NFU were keen on supporting another memorial, they might be convinced to work with the WFU.

Very interesting - thanks for sharing!
