I didn't know she rode motorcycles in WW2 as a dispatch rider.

Nor did I so I've been trawling through all the obituaries and photos and can't find any reference to it. Found a picture of her astride a Norton Big 4 as a promotion for the 1948 film "A boy, a girl and a bike" though 8-) Give us a link please, Mitch.

A nice little chat with her a few years ago about her life. She mentions the bike riding.

Thank you both for a little more reading material. She's gone right up in my estimation - almost but not quite up to the Joanna Lumley deity level :4roz: :worthy:

2nd Bond girl this year. 1st was Claudine Auger of Thunderball.

The article with her taking speech lessons over a bicycle was funny. She could have easily been the lead in My Fair Lady, as she was a true east ender.
