In 1942, she was assigned to Gulliver Base to work with the Egg, an aircraft of alien origin, after tracking its movements. There she met Edward Travers, and he recommended her to the Home-Army Fourth Operational Corps. (PROSE: The Flaming Soldier)
In 1969, she visited her cousin Derek Younghusband shortly after he began working with Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. Derek told her about his recent encounter with the Fungusmen. (PROSE: The Last Duty)
Later that year, she encountered Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart and helped him repel the same aliens she had previous encountered at Gulliver Base in 1942. She was saddened to learn of Edward Travers' death.
Behind the scenes Edit
Eileen Younghusband existed in real life and many of the life details given in The Last Duty correspond with real life. She wrote three books for Candy Jar Books, the publishing company responsible for the Lethbridge-Setwart series. With Eileen's permission, the character Derek Younghusband was introduced into the Lethbridge-Stewart series in the short story The Band of Evil as Eileen's fictional cousin.
