LADY ACE - National Novel Writing Month Idea # 6


National Novel Writing Month Idea # 6
NaNoWriMo 2018


Lady Alice Celia Edwards Rutledge, Lady ACE, joined the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) because she wanted to serve her country and she wanted to fly. An experienced woman pilot she expects to be used to shuttle fighters and bombers to France. Instead, she learns her job is to serve as a clerk for the 56th squadron. Unwilling to give up flying, she embarks on a bold plan. She creates orders for a new air officer, Edward Rutledge, to be assigned to the squadron. Dressed as a man, Lady Alice is able to fool the commander and most of the flyers, but not Lt. Scottie Clarke. Scottie is willing to keep her secret hoping to win her love. Alice’s first kill in a dogfight over Somme, France sets her on the path to be the RAF’s first and only woman ACE in World War One.
