They did have one but not all women wore it.

"The Women's Land Army had a uniform - green jerseys, brown breeches, brown felt hats and khaki overcoats. However, the Land Army was not a military force and many women did not wear the uniform. Some women lived in hostels but most lived on individual farms. ... The Women's Land Army remained in existence until 1950."

This is a picture of Kitty in her uniform, could it be an RAF uniform?

Yes you would need to apply to the MoD for a copy of her service records. 30 and quite a long wait at the moment.
