Biography

Mentioned as being a munitions worker:

‘One incident which stood out in her memory was when, on 26th March 1918, an explosion occurred in which one girl was killed and another injured, Selby was working nearby in Hill 2, but fortunately no one there was hurt. The following day she and another girl named Mary Low, were sent to take the place of the two unfortunate girls.’ — G Routledge, Gretna’s Secret War (Bookcase, 1999) p. 60.
