This 1955 magazine article tells the story of Roberta Cowell, who was once a hard-charging R.A.F. Spitfire pilot who went by the name Robert Cowell until he decided that he would much prefer to be a woman. Today, Cowell is remembered as the first Briton to surgically change genders.

Seeing that this was written during the era of the Howdy-Doody Show, it is absent of words such as vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, breast augmentation - even the words chromosome and hormone cannot be found. What comes across clearly is that the sexual reassignment surgery was a success and the transformation from male to female was verified by two accomplished physicians of the time. They even said the Cowell was experience menstruation, which we find very difficult to believe...

Another article on sex change operations can be read here...
