Gwendoline Courtney

Gwendoline Courtney was born on 23rd September 1911, and she attended Oldershaw High School in Wallasey in the Wirral. In the Second World War she was the only civilian who worked on Operation Overlord. After the death of her parents she and her sister lived together until her sister died in 1995, and Gwendoline herself died the following year. She wrote family stories, as well as a couple of school stories, and her books have proved some of the most popular which we have introduced onto the GGBP list.

A Coronet for Cathie will be published between July and August 2024.
