Nellie Spindler - nurse from Wakefield, Yorkshire - killed in WW1 on the Western Front

Thank you to Jonathan D'Hooghe who runs the website www.worldwar-ancestry.co.uk  Jonathan answered my request for information about Inspirational Women.  He suggested Nellie Spindler who was a British nurse of the Queen Alexandra's Military Nursing Service.  Nellie was killed while she was working in a Field Hospital and is buried in the Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery in Belgium - she is the only woman there.

French, German and Chinese graves are also in that Cemetery.

and if you want the lyrics to Bram Vermeulen's song, which is called "Testament" and is on YouTube, you will find them here (in English):  http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dlyrics%2Bto%2Btestament%2Bby%2Bbram%2Bvermeulen%26client%3Dsafari%26rls%3Den&rurl=translate.google.co.uk&sl=nl&u=http://muzikum.eu/en/123-217-2611/bram-vermeulen/testament-songtekst.html&usg=ALkJrhgE5TmPj4emzNUl12_FNJvjMfBcQQ#ixzz2iT8xiTZW
