RCN remembers war dead

  • Comment

The Royal College of Nursing has today joined with thousands of people across the UK to remember those who have died during conflict on the 90th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Official figures for the number of nurses who were killed or injured during the conflict as they were not considered military or civilian personnel.

However thoughts turn today to the example of Edith Cavell, who was executed by firing squad on 12 October, 1915, after helping hundreds of soldiers from allied forces escape from Belgium to the neutral Netherlands.

An RCN spokesperson said: ‘Today, the thoughts of RCN members and staff are with all those who have lost loved ones and with all those currently serving in our armed forces both at home and abroad.’
