My choice this week is of a young 16 year old Yeadon girl who was a weaver at Murgatroyd's Mill and who after the death of her father joined the ranks of the Salvation Army. Such was her good work recognised for caring of the injured WW1 servicemen in hostels and clubs, she was awarded the MBE. An extraordinary woman in extraordinary times.
