In the first episode, Foyle's War: The German Woman it is explained that Sergeant Milner joined the police after being been invalided out of the army because he lost part of his leg while fighting. He has a false leg and for the first few episodes he walks with a noticeable limp. However in later episodes his limp has miraculously disappeared and he is able to sprint when he needs to chase suspects.

While it is correct to state that the rank of Chief Superintendent was not created until 1949 it was used before this in special circumstances. An officer junior to the assistant chief constable but with a large division or divisions under his control for example. So it is quite feasible that Folye, with such a large section of the south coast under his command was given the superior rank.
