Neyret Freres - Edith Cavell

INTRIGUE - By Peter Clowes

A fanatically selfless sense of duty drove nurse Edith Cavell to harbor Allied soldiers behind German lines.

Cavell first worked as a governess for a family in Brussels, then became a nurse. By 1911, she was training nurses for three hospitals, 24 schools and 13 kindergartens in Belgium. She was a brisk, businesslike, rather straight-laced woman with a high crown of graying hair and gray eyes.
