An elderly woman in palliative care who was the first female mounted police officer in the UK has had her final wish granted by the NSW Mounted Police.
Rita Meredith (nee Browning), originally from England made history in her early 20s. After serving in the police force for two years, Rita moved to the UK Mounted Police unit in the 1960s.
