Shot at Dawn – work in progress

Another in the series of WWI Hearts. I’ve embroidered the names of all the men who were ‘Shot at Dawn’ on this piece. That’s all those who were shot by the British army for; desertion, cowardice, putting down arms, refusing an order, mutiny and striking an officer. Most of them were young Privates – only 3 of those shot were officers and all three of those were brought up through the ranks.
