The lost sound.... of Amy Johnson

The internet has been wonderful for both discovering and preserving images from the past -
it's not always the same for what I call 'lost' sound recordings - everyone goes for the flashy pictures it seems!

Recently I came across an old acetate recording of pioneer aviatrix Amy Johnson talking about flying her DH Moth 'Jason' from England to Australia - she really does not sound how I was expecting her to!

Please enjoy, and leave comments as to what you think  - I do have a source of some more!
