Land girl - wtf?  I like the last bit though Love

As a woman, you weren't allowed to fight, but that didn't mean you couldn't serve. As a Land Girl, you would be a member of the Women's Land Army, stepping in to replace the men throughout British agriculture. You would have tilled the soil, planted crops, and brought in the harvest. With the nation under blockade and rationing only going so far, you kept Britain safe.

Dan Snow said he lies to his daughters about there being female pilots in the RAF during the Battle of Britain.  What an insult to the women who were producing food and munitions, without which we couldn't fight.  And don't forget the women at Bletchley Park.  There's more to a war than just the front-line.

CODEBREAKER

With your mind for mathematics and your ability to keep secrets, you would be best deployed in the homeland at Bletchley Park, codebreaking with Alan Turing and his team as they worked tirelessly to decrypt the German Enigma code. Without the efforts of these brave and intelligent men and women, the German plans would not have been known, and misinformation could not have been fed to them. These heroes went unsung for decades, but they saved countless lives and shortened the war by years.
