DETECTIVE’S WIDOW IN THE ‘FORCE’
Tall, attractive Mrs. Madge Welby, said this week that she had joined the Police Force because she had always been interested in her dead husband‘s work.
Mrs. Welby is the widow of Detective-Constable E. S. (“Frank”) Welby, who died of heart trouble in March.
He had been attached to Regent Street Police Station for more than four years.
Mrs. Welby, who had just been sworn-in as a police-woman, said: “I felt I’d grown to belong to the Police Force, and I love children.
“My work in the police school lecturing section should give me the chance to satisfy both these interests.
“it will let me serve the community in the way I’d like best.”
Mrs. Welby said she had no children of her own, but “more than 30 nephews and nieces.”
Before her marriage she had worked as a machinist, she said.
