Land Girls to receive WWII honor (UK)





The service of tens of thousands of women who worked the land to provide food and timber during World War II is due to be formally recognised.

Surviving members of the Women's Land Army and Women's Timber Corps will be presented with badges of honour.

Fifty of the women - who were dubbed Land Girls and Lumber Jills - will go to 10 Downing Street for a ceremony attended by Gordon Brown.

More than 30,000 badge applications have been received to date.
