1933 BBC Radio Interview with a WI member.

Janet has very kindly submitted this transcript of a 1933 radio interview with Hilda Louise Crowther, a Shropshire WI member & grandmother of a friend of Janet’s. 

It is very interesting on a number of levels, not only as it pre-dates WWII when the WI really came into it’s own & acquired many of the stereotypes with which it is still associated.

Click HERE to read the full transcript (& just imagine the very clipped tones of the BBC interviewer).
