A Petition regarding commemorating Nurse Edith Cavell

I noticed today that there is a petition organised by a relative of Edith Cavell's - details here:

https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/the-british-treasury-issue-a-2-coin-with-the-face-of-edith-cavell-on-it?utm_source=action_alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=60248&alert_id=MDODnZlKDN_Hkykw4TU43Pe0Gwpbc0SOiMPv11vyi8mVeytHS78hVg%3D%0A

in case anyone would like to sign.

Edith was one of my heroines as I grew up.  We studied her story in primary school along with the story of Grace Darling - another of my heroines - and Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Fry and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson.

I have since read an excellent biography about Edith Cavell.
