A female agent of WWII was assessed as "not having the personality to act as a leader" before she was parachuted into France, files have revealed. Pearl Cornioley, who died in February, ended up in command of 3,000 French resistance fighters. Documents released at the National Archives say Mrs Cornioley was later commended for "colossal bravery" and "outstanding powers of leadership". She was eventually given her Parachute Wings at the age of 92. Full article at: BBC Clicky Pic in article shows her with para wings pinned to her dress. I hope nobody starts "walt! walt!" on this one. apparently she was put in for Military Cross but turned down due to gender. I would like to have met this old girl. I wish there was a book about her.
