Caption: Marie Marvingt (1875-1963), French aviator and mountaineer, standing next to an aeroplane. Marvingt is one of the most decorated women in the history of France. She climbed many mountains, was a record-breaking balloonist, and a pioneering aviator. She was taught to fly by Hubert Latham, and received her French flying license in 1910, only the third woman in the world to have a flying license. After World War I, she spent most of the rest of her life dedicated to setting up air ambulances. Photograph from the Bain News Service.
