  1. Hello!

    I am wondering if you could help me.

    I currently work and live in Beihai (formerly known as Pakhoi): a former Treaty Port in southern China.

    I am writing a book about the people that shaped Pakhoi during the Treaty Period 1870 – 1940.

    I have found a reference locally to a female British aviator landing in Pakhoi in September 1932.

    I originally assumed that it was Amy Johnson but I have been assured by relevant historians that she did not fly over (or land in) mainland China when she undertook her flight from the UK to Australia and return.

    Apparently the visit caused quite a stir here locally at the time, being British, female and an early aviator.

    Did Mary (Petre) Bruce land in Pakhoi on her way to Hong Kong? Could it be that the records here of Sept 1932 are incorrect?

    Any help you could give me to identify the female British aviator would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Ian B
