Chief Inspector Lilian Wyles - what a lovely photo.

There is quite a lot on the web about her if you Google.

Interesting notes to make your family feel so proud:

The last officer to be detailed in Police Orders is a notable figure. Lilian Wyles, as her central record of service demonstrates, ended her career as an inspector. Alongside publishing her memoirs (Woman and Scotland Yard (1952)), on her retirement she lectured and broadcast on police matters and child welfare. On her death, in 1975, she was listed in Who Was Who. Wyles's record details her date of birth, appointment, commendations, promotions and pension; by the time of her retirement the pension was awarded to women. It is also notable that, in 1949, she was awarded the British Empire Medal.

Sue - and so - what you say could be deemed correct, but by human nature we are often a curious lot and the majority of the "everybody" as of now 36 GR people would probably have opened the link and had a look and seen the photo as well.

And that majority would have been able to read the nice words about Lilian Wyles as per the web site.

But it was very kind of you to extract part of the text and put it on here.
