Violet Douglas-Pennant - Under The Search-Light

Violet Douglas-Pennant - Under The Search-Light  - Record of A Great Scandal.  George Allen & Unwin.  1922, 463pp.  Commandant the Honourable Violet Blanche Douglas-Pennant (31 January 1869 12 October 1945) was a British philanthropist and supporter of local government who served as the second commandant of the Women's Royal Air Force (WRAF) until her dismissal in August 1918.  This book is the case she put forward against those who sought to have her dismissed because of her exposures of Immorality.  Her case was viewed sympathetically by the Britons Society who saw a conspiracy at work.  Good copy.
