Captured by the Germans, Edith was tried by a German kangaroo court because she helped British and ALL other wounded soldiers and, unlike others similarly charged, was singled out to be executed! Others (French, Belgians &c) were sent to German POW camps in Germany.
Let us honour her now by supporting the campaign for her to be commemorated on a new �2 coin as one of the initiatives marking the disaster of the First World War.

“Patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.”
