As today is Ada Lovelace day....

Can I draw your attention to Beatrice Shilling? Most books on the Spitfire will give her a paragraph; Gunston's, well-regarded book on aircraft engines gives her a bit more, as so it damn-well should.

Her fascinating life deserves a better memorial than some pub-name in Farnborough.
