December 2015 Book of the Month. You don't often read “gangsters” and National Trust in the same sentence, more surprising still to find out that the said “gangsters” are a secret group of women. Operating mostly pre-World War Two, they supported the National Trust with hard cash, they loved playing games and would deliver their “swag” in ways we would recognise today as prime PR stunts. It caused a great many column inches and meant recognition for a young and struggling National Trust. One of those enjoyable histories that highlights forgotten and overlooked historical events, a look at a group of women whose passion for old buildings and unspoiled land meant that places like Sennen Cove can be enjoyed by everyone today. ~ Sue Baker Like for Like Reading Men from the Ministry: How Britain Saved its Heritage, Simon ThurleySome Country Houses and their Owners, James Lees-Milne
