    After just posting in Tonym's thread regarding a Ellie Porter who was sadly killed in the Women's land army WW1 and buried in St.Catherine's churchyard,Eskdale.Cumbria. I was also researching a memorial to a WW2 casualty and found that they were sister and brother.

    As the sister died while serving in one of the civilian services (WLA) in WW1 she is not commemorated by the CWGC.
