We often hear about the heroic work done by British forces during the Second World War. Also playing a crucial role in the war effort were the members of Women's Institute, involved in housing evacuees and campaigning for social change.

One member Sybil Norcott joined us to talk about her experiences along with the book's author Julie Summers.
