When the Men go to War, The Women go to Work
Students at the University of Kansas School of Nursing learn about the life of Nurse Edith Cavell, even though they are more than a hundred years beyond her time, and a world away from her home. World War One began in August of 1914, and Nurse Edith Cavell, the daughter of a British Reverend, quickly returned to Brussels, where she was working as the matron of a medical clinic.
With the help of several brave Brussels women, wounded soldiers were treated, and if they were not from the area, they were transported secretly to Holland by means of a lady who had a river barge that regularly transported merchandise between the two nations. This movie, filmed only twenty-five years after the events, portrays the eleven months of true gallantry of the women who worked undercover to help wounded soldiers.
That first great war ended on November 11, 1918. Less than a month before the end of that war, on 12 October 1918, exactly three years after her execution, a statue of Nurse Edith Cavell was unveiled by Queen Alexandra in the tombland by Norwich Cathedral, Norfolk. In May of 1919, after the war was over, her remains were exhumed from the shooting range in Brussels and returned to England on the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Rowena.
Three females have been given a state funeral at Westminster Abbey. Princess Diana and former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher have had state funerals at the famed cathedral, but the first woman commoner to have an official state funeral was Nurse Edith Cavelle, on 15 May 1919. After the memorial service at Westminster Abbey that ends this movie, her coffin was taken through the streets of London while shoulder to shoulder crowds stood in reverent silence as her coffin passed by. A special train took her coffin from the Liverpool Street station to Norwich Cathedral, where she was buried in a simple grave on the east end of the Cathedral.
