October 12 – Newry woman tried with Edith Cavell. Roll of Honour

On the anniversary of the execution of British nurse Edith Cavell by the Germans we recall Ada Bodart, the Newry woman who was tried with her. This is also the anniversary of New Zealand’s worst military day in the assault at Passchendaele. The roll includes 14 NI men who died including Herbert Carson, a doctor from Larne awarded the DSO for gallant service in the field.
