Audio Slideshow:'Six happy years'

Ruth Bowley was seventeen years old when she joined the Land Army. She moved on to a farm to
live by herself, feeding chickens and cattle as part of a huge wartime effort to keep the nation fed.
Ruth's memories are part of a major new exhibition - 'The Land Army - Cinderellas of the Soil' at
Brighton Museum.
