Barbara Eachus, 91; former vice-consul at British Consulate
As vice-consul at the British Consulate in Boston, Barbara Eachus coordinated visits by royalty and was the person many in the city turned to for the definitive answer to any question concerning England. As a 16-year-old, though, she worked with her country’s code-breakers during World War II. In 1971, Queen Elizabeth II appointed her a Member of the Order of the British Empire. “I am thrilled,’’ Mrs. Eachus told the Globe then.
