Wife of Sir Samuel Hoare, Viscount Templewood but achieved her DBE in her own right, by flying in 1927 a 12,000-mile round trip flight inaugurating the London-Cairo-Delhi air service, the first woman ever to fly such a distance. Her husband accompanied her for which he was appointed GBE. Even for the times this seems an easy way for him to pick up letters after his name.
