05. Bindloss, Miss M.E.
Summerhill Cottage, Manaton, Newton Abbot, Devon.
As a District Commissioner in Newton Abbot before the Second World War, I met the Chief on one of her visits to Devon.
Some years later, during the war, I was in Ely, nursing with the RAF.
On off-duty evenings I helped with a Brownie Pack, not in Guide uniform but in my VAD uniform, and one evening the Chief visited the Pack, and going round the ring she came to me.
She looked hard at me, and said "I know you - now don't tell me - let me think- - yes, I know, it was in Devon!"
