    This is lovely to see my mother Jackie Moggridge is the first picture and in two more she was No. 15 Ferry Pool Hamble she joined in 1940 and flew planes during the war and 500 spitfires in her lifetime. She was awarded the Kings Commendation for valuable services in the Air, The Queens Coronation Medal and became the first Woman Airline Captain to fly passengers on Scheduled flights for which she was awarded the Jean Lennox Bird Trophy for furthering the cause of women in aviation. Her last flight was age 74 when she was to fly spitfire ML507 50 years to the day she had taken it in the ATA to a New Zealand Pilot for D day.
