Mildred Bruce, nee Mildred Mary Petre, was a record breaker on land, sea and in the air. She drove for 24 hours in a Bentley, at an average speed of 90 MPH. Having purchased an aircraft from a store in Regent Street, London, she flew around the world. She was also a pioneer of in-air refuelling, following a non-stop flight of 55 hours around the Isle of Wight. During the 1930's she set up her own airline company, employing the world's first air stewardess between London and Paris. (bio by: Kieran Smith)
