    Jean Batton?

    – Died in Palma, Majorca (pic 2)

      Died in Majorca – pic 2
      Inspired to learn to fly by Lindbergh – pic 3

        Batton and Lindbergh share a couple of awards too

        • Betty Swallocks

          … not to mention that pink and white-quartered sponge cake wrapped in marzipan that’s named after them …

      • Sally

        Pretty much what I was looking for. To add to Clue1, Jean’s mother on the wall beside Jean’s cot pinned a newspaper picture of the French pilot Louis Blériot, who had just flown the English Channel – a statement that her newborn daughter’s generation would be capable of similar achievements.
