There she joined the SOE network called Wheelwright under the supervision of George Starr, for whom she served as a courier until after D-Day. For her work in occupied France, she was awarded the MBE (Civil Division). She later wrote a memoir of her war experiences, published in 1946 as Moondrop to Gascony.
