The Amazing Victoria Drummond (Part Two)

Season: 5 Episode: 4

Victoria Drummond was the first female marine engineer in the UK and the first British woman to serve as chief engineer with the Merchant Navy, but all this was earned through sheer determination and a driving force to spend her life doing what she loved, regardless of the perceived boundaries. In this episode, we look at how she won her M.B.E for bravery and the latter part of her inspirational life.
