Rosalind Elder has her own site"Deicated to the over 4,900 young women who joined the Women's Land Army Timber Corps (W.L.A.T.C.) in WWII in order to make a contribution to the war effort. They worked in the forests of Great Britain, felling, snedding,loading, crosscutting, driving tractors, trucks, working with horses, measuring and operating sawmills.
