Edith Cavell statue in memory of Edith Cavell, opposite the National Portrait Gallery, London London, February 2007
Statue in memory of Edith Cavell, opposite the National Portrait Gallery, St. Martin's Place, near Trafalgar Square, London.

Born in Swardeston in Norfolk in 1865, Cavell served as a matron in the Berkendael Institute in Brussels, Belgium, which was taken over by the Germans in WW1.

In violation of military law, Cavell was accused of helping hundreds of Allied soldiers to escape to the neutral Netherlands, and was executed by firing squad on October 12, 1915.

The night before her execution she said the words now inscribed on her statue, "Patriotism is not enough, I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone."

Somerset House, Strand, London, February 2007
There's usually something going on in the courtyard of Somerset House (like a beach dance performance or ice skating), so it was rather strange to see it totally deserted.
