The Australian Women's Land Army was formed in July 1942 to provide labour to the rural industry in Australia to ensure military and civilian requirements for food production were met. The Women's Land Army released men to fight at the front. They wore their uniform with pride as they were doing 'their bit for King and country'. A style from WWII, adapted for the 21st century woman.
