    WLA commerative medals. According to Nicola Tyrer’s 1996 history, “They Fought in the Fields: The Women’s Land Army,” after the war, Winston Churchill vetoed the inclusion of the WLA in the demobilization grants to women who served in the military. Thirty years later, Tyrer wrote, the WLA was denied permission to march in a WWII remembrance procession. In 2008, the British government finally recognized the WLA by awarding these service badges.
