    just wondered if anyone could help with more information about Joan Margaret Cole Hamilton. I believe she worked for the foreign office and went to Norway for which she was awarded mbe for her services whilst out there and she died in 1945 in an air crash whilst coming back from a conference. Any help greatly appreciated and thanks in advance

    Hi, I understood that Miss P M S. Spurway was a member of WRNS, can someone confirm this?
