Miss Cavell, cousin of Nurse Cavell, calls & distributes flowers. We have a very interesting chat. If Nurse Cavell was like her cousin, she must have been an angel.
*Edith Cavell was a British nurse during the First World War. She is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without distinction. Born in England, Nurse Cavell moved to Belgium where she was appointed matron of the Berkendael Medical Institute in Brussels in 1907. With war in 1914 and the subsequent German occupation of Belgium Cavell joined the Red Cross; the Berkendael Institute was converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers of all nationalities.Many of the captured Allied soldiers who were treated at Berkendael subsequently succeeded in escaping – with Cavell’s active assistance – to neutral Holland. In 1915, she was arrested for helping 200 allied soldiers escape from German occupied Belgium. She was subsequently court-martialled, found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a German firing squad. Her execution received worldwide condemnation and extensive press coverage.
