An Airman's Wife. A True Story of Lovers Separated by War.
Herbert Jenkins Limited,, (London): 1918 - octavo, 302pp. A moving story of the love between McHardy and her husband, Capt. William A. Bond, a pilot who served with distinction in 40 Squadron RFC. Bill Bond went to serve as a fighter pilot on the Western Front, from where, to the ever present sound of gun fire, hardly a day went by without him writing to his sweetheart. They were letters of unconditional love which also described in minute detail his service life and experiences And Aimée replied in kind. By now Bill was a captain and an ace, and when, tragically, he was taken from her one July day, she completed her book about their extraordinary love affair as a kind of release to enable her to contain the pain of her loss.
