    News has just broken, so no obit. yet.
    Putting this here because she drove a CD ambulance during the war.
    "Honor Blackman, best-known for playing Bond girl Pussy Galore, has died aged 94, her family said.
    The actor shot to fame in the 1960s after playing Cathy Gale in The Avengers..
    She went on to have a successful career in the industry spanning eight decades.
    The 94-year-old, from London, passed away of natural causes unrelated to the coronavirus.
    The actress worked alongside Scots acting legend Sean Connery in 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, where she would play the iconic Pussy Galore.
    Her role is considered one of the most recognised names for a Bond girl across the entire series.
    A message from her family said: "It's with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Honor Blackman aged 94. She died peacefully of natural causes at home in Lewes, Sussex surrounded by her family. She was much loved and will be greatly missed by her two adopted children Barnaby and Lottie, and her four grandchildren Daisy, Oscar, Olive and Toby."

    Watched her seasons of The Avengers a while back. She was a tough act for Diana Rigg to follow.
