Joan Bright Astley: September 27, 1910 - December 24, 2008

"... in April 1939, she received a mysterious message instructing her to go to St James’s Park underground station on a certain day wearing a pink carnation. There she was met by a woman who led her to an anonymous office where she signed the Official Secrets Act and was assigned to work in the Military Intelligence directorate of the War Office."

Joan Bright Astley worked with Churchill's wartime cabinet during World War II.
