Mabel Pearce had a variety of war-time jobs, from preparing shell cases to checking the numbers on 10s and £1 notes. In the photograph she is with Mrs Bollington and her three daughters with whom she was billeted.
This certificate, with a beautifully coloured coat of arms at the top, was presented to Mrs Barnes who is thought to have worked on the Upper Milton farms in 1915-16.
This is one of series of snapshots taken from the Society’s publications “The Wychwoods Albums”. These publications from the mid to late 1980s feature a variety of images of the Wychwoods, all of which deserve a place in our expanding online archive.
