By the first woman to receive the George Cross ...(Corporal Pearson) stood on the wreckage, roused the pilot...and helped him to get clear. When she got him about 30 yards from the wreckage a 120 pound bomb went off and Corporal Pearson threw herself on top of the pilot to protect him... This book captures the richly interesting life of Daphne Pearson as photographer, landscape designer and market gardener and war heroine. It was in 1940 during the Battle of Britain that she became the first woman to receive the George Cross given for acts of courage in circumstances of extreme danger. In a touching human-interest angle, Daphne was traced by the descendants of David Bond, the man whose life she had saved and it was they who discovered that she had written this absorbing autobiography.
