Sue Ryder the G.I.S.!
Sue Ryder was one of the GIS; she has become famous since then.
Why do you recognise that name now?
What is the purpose of the sort of place that she is connected to?
Amongst the jobs Sue Ryder did was driving agents of the Special Operations Executive to an airfield to take off to Europe.
Where did she do her relief work? What job did she do? You might need to find out what the initials DP means.
Others Who Joined the Cause
We didn’t have a Guide Leader from Norfolk go, but Geoff Crane, a Scout Leader from Norwich went along and was with RRU.7. We have tracked down some photos of him.
He went with this Unit that went to Greece, via Egypt. Alison Duke (also known as Chick), a Guider from Cambridge led this group. The kit displayed is hers. She was a translator and afterwards based at Girton College in Cambridge.
