Title: Remember! The Murder of Edith Cavell
Creator: Laureys
Description: Miss Edith Cavell cowardly murdered by a German officer Condemned to death by a military tribunal in Belgium, under the charge of having favoured the evasion of British soldiers, miss Edith Cavell, of Norwich, a vouluntary nurse, is taken to the execution ground on the 12th October at daybreak. She faints: the German officer gives his soldiers the order to fire; they hesitate to shoot on the prostrate body of a woman. The fiend takes his revolver and leaning upon his victim, deliberately blows her brains out. Remember!
