To my shame, I don't know much about women's roles in the Royal Flying Corps. I'm glad Alice was promoted for her tireless wing-doping. I wonder if she wished she'd been born a boy so she could have been a pilot? I can't believe anyone could work with aircraft and not have their imagination captured by them, especially in the early days. It must have given her a thrill to know that the canvas she'd painted was destined to fly thousands of feet above the ground.
Rest in peace.
