    Miss Evelyn Harmer, O.B.E (Civil Division) for staying at her switchboard and transmitting messages for three hours during a raid on Southampton, though fully aware that delayed-action bombs had fallen in the vicinity. One exploded within 100 yards of the office. Miss Harmer who stated: "All I was concerned about was doing the job I had been asked to do," was only 16.

    Hi

    I believe that she was manning the switch board at the Supermarine works in Woolston whilst it was being bombed during a day light raid.

    Do you know any more about her?
