In 1915, a young woman from Suffolk became a soldier in the Serbian Army. In the same year, nurse Edith Cavell from Norfolk was helping Allied soldiers to escape imprisonment. The women of East Anglia rose to every challenge during both world wars, from working the land to firefighting.


For the first time their story is told, including: Norwich Ladies Fire Brigade in 1915, the Land Army in Essex and Norfolk, barrage balloon operators at Cardington, Suffolk nurses from the mobile hospital unit and Barbara Meadows – the Cambridgeshire billeting officer who took the job the men refused.
