Eileen Harris (1920-1976) born in Cwmnantyrodyn, Mynyddislwyn, Newport, Monmouthshire, Wales. Parents Clifford Harris and Sarah Elizabeth Keeling.

She joined the WAAF (423976 CLK/GD/Maps). Her Polish fiance and Airman/Officer? was killed during World War II.

She had apparently had an opportunity to join Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop but family commitments had prevented her. Her claim to fame was singing ‘run rabbit run’ at the Lyceum in Sheffield.

After the war she met and married Desmond Peter Middleton from Sheffield who had been a Sabotage Agent in the 1st SAS serving under Colonal Paddy Mayne, when she went to Brincliffe Teacher’s Training College in Sheffield (1946-1948). She became a teacher, teaching in Sheffield, South Africa, Bedfordshire and Kent before her death from hepatitis at the age of 55 in 1976.
