Today’s edition of the Independent on Sunday [not to be confused with the Irish Sunday Independent] has an article about Tracey Curtis-Taylor and her proposed flight from Cape Town to Goodwood in Sussex in commemoration of the first light-aircraft flight from South Africa to Britain, which was made by Mary, Lady Heath in 1928.
The newspaper account says:
The journey is being touted as a boost for Britain. Maria Miller, the Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, said: “The groundbreaking achievements of Lady Heath deserve recognition. I hope everyone who watches as [Curtis-Taylor] retraces the route will be inspired to visit the country that she comes from.”
How kind of Ms Miller to promote Irish tourism: Mary, Lady Heath was from Co Limerick in Ireland.
