Last Sunday’s Post Magazine ( August 28, 2016) saw Clair featured on its front cover with a photo taken of Claire in full flight gear in the cockpit of a British fighter jet. Inside the magazine she was given a featured four-page spread, plus another double-page spread book review of her recently published biography, “Of Fortunes and War”, written by her nephew Patrick Garrett.
Clare’s has truly been a remarkable career and as one of the world’s first female ware correspondents, she led for others to follow. Claire will be 105 in October, a remarkable feat in itself, and as usual her birthday will be celebrated in the reading room a the FCC.
