About this memory

Shiona Gunn with other members of the Women's Land Army.

"This was us after a long day at the harvest - I am on the far left at the back row, complete with turban on my head. Glencorse House was used as a hostel for 'Land Girls'. We were right beside Glencorse Barracks and used to invite the troops who were recuperating - having been prisoners of war of the Japanese - to a social evening (only tea and biscuits). We used to play hide 'n' seek in the little graveyard where Burke and Hare did their graverobbing in the grounds of Glencorse House." - Shiona Fraser [2004]
