Aimee McHardy Stuart (July 1886 - April 17, 1981) was a stage and film writer who wrote a memoir of her marriage to First World War flying ace, William A. Bond. Born Amy McHardy in July 1886, she was the daughter of William Arnot McHardy, a commercial clerk, and his wife Mercy (Baker) McHardy of Glasgow, Scotland [1]. She met her first husband William A. (Bill) Bond in Paris, France where he worked as a journalist for the London Daily Mail. While in Paris, she changed her name to Aimee, and the couple openly lived and travelled together across Europe[2]. After war broke out, they returned to England where Bill Bond joined the Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, and Aimee returned to her London home in Marylebone [3]. Aimee and Bill were married in January 1917, and Bill transferred to the Royal Flying Corps. While serving with the No. 40 Squadron Royal Flying Corps, Bill became an Ace, credited with five kills. He was posted missing on July 22, 1917, three days after returning from leave. Aimee believed he was alive, but he was later confirmed as killed in action. Using their correspondence, Aimee wrote An Airman's Wife: A True Story of Lovers Separated by War which was published in 1918[4]. She later married Philip Stuart, an author and playwright, and they collaborated on several London West End plays in the 1920s-1930s[5]. After Stuart's death, Aimee continued to write plays and film scripts [6] [7]. She died on April 16, 1981.
