Happy Birthday to my heroine. Mildred Mary Petre was born on this day in 1895. It took her less than 15 years to develop a thirst for speed: she worked up from 1 Pony Power to 1 Horse Power, and thence to more than 100 h.p..
If she was with us today, and in good health, she would no doubt be hankering to get to the International Space Station!
