ON SATURDAY morning, YH editor, Michael Casey presented a talk at Harlow Museum on the Why They Came Here project.

In the audience was 91-year-old Florence Corker who had come to visit the museum from Devon.

Florence told us that she came to Harlow as a Land Girl in 1946. Florence worked on the land near Mark Hall. She remembered the building that is now the museum so well and it was a delight to return with her family.

They were clearly happy times for Florence, although there were sad events when one young Land Girl died in an accident.

It was good to meet Florence and hear her story of a Harlow that we can only just glimpse at now.
