The Life & Times of Edith Cavell
A Family History talk by Melanie Gibson-Barton
Wednesday 14th February 2018 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Melanie gave her usual high-quality talk with lots of pictures and background information. One member said it was “one of the best speakers and presentations I have seen in years”.
Some were surprised at the connection Edith had as a young nurse at Maidstone hospital early in her career. The story of this British heroine meticulously detailed with the aid of existing artefacts and photos through to her execution in Brussels in 1915. A sad but inspiring story of a very special lady.
