One Woman's War author, Eileen Younghusband, has  had her memories immortalised a personal lifestory portrait.

The portrait has been created by Richard Pepper from Photographic Memory who contacted Eileen after seeing her on BBC Breakfast News talking about the Filter Room.

He said: " I was fascinated by her amazing life story and wanted to create a visual to be the centrepiece of my display. It has also been a real pleasure spending time with Eileen these last few months. She really is an inspiration. We displayed her portrait along with our other examples at the 'Who Do You Think You Are Live 2012' Exhibition at Olympia at the end of February. As always Eileen's life story, and her portrait, generated a great deal of interest."

Richard has recently presented Eileen with a framed replica and Eileen was extremely happy with the result. She said: "It touched my heart. It's such a wonderful way to commemorate a person's life."
