BRECON LAND GIRL HONOURED. I MISS EILEEN TALMAGE, second daughter of Mr and Mrs Talmage, of the Angel Hotel, Brecon, who joined the Women's Land Army in May, 1917, and worked on Capt. J. D. D. Evans's estate at Ffrwdgrech until the end of November last, when the Land Army was demobilised. In connection with the demobilisation there was a great rally of Land Girls at the Drapers' Hall, London, on Nov. 27th, to meet Princess Mary, and Miss Talmage was one of two selected by the County Organising Secretary (Miss Hilda Yaughan) to represent Breconshire at the interesting gathering. Each of the land workers, to the number of about 400, received an excellent photograph of the Princess and Miss Talmage was one of a fortunate proportion for whom Her Royal Highness signed the photograph. Mr Talmage, as many of our readers know, is an old regimental sergeant-major of the 24th Regiment, South Wales Borderers he was in France when his daughter "joined up."
