Dorothy Lawrence, an aspiring British journalist, disguised herself as a soldier and spent three weeks undercover at the front in France during WWI. After her discovery, she was banned from journalism but wrote a book about her experiences which was finally published in 1919. Later in her life, she claimed under investigation that she was raped as a child by her churchman and was consequently sectioned and spent the rest of her life in Friern Hospital. Where is her story now?
