    A memorial to the 'lumberjills' - the women who worked in forestry during World War Two - has been unveiled in North Yorkshire.
    The sculpture in Dalby Forest, Nr Pickering is a steel fabrication of a felled tree and two lumberjills.
    Some 9,000 British women were recruited to work in forestry during the war.
