    The title within the film says Muriel, but she is better known as Marjorie Foster as evidenced by her citation in the 1952 Birthday Honours list for MBE \\\"Senior Commander Marjorie Elaine Foster, late ATS, a member of the Committee of the British Commonwealth Rifle Club. For services to visitors from overseas\\\"
