Maureen has also researched and published articles on the history of the Anglo American Sunny Bank Hospital in Cannes, Resistance Heroine Hélène Vagliano, Sir John Fortescue, Spitfire Pilot Richard Hillary, Eric Dunstan (‘the man with the golden voice’), Olga Khokhlova and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna, (‘Russians of the Riviera’) and many more. They are all listed below and can be viewed on their own pages by following the links. Their main theme or feature is that they all have a connection with the Riviera in the South of France – hence the title, ‘Stories of the Riviera’.
