Ada Bodart - WA Connection

Ada Bodart - The WA Connection Dennis Joseph Doherty MLC

Ada Bodart was condemned to death for helping British soldiers escape from German occupied Belgium during the 1914-1918 War. Whilst Edith Cavell's death is being commemorated in Britain during October 2015, Ada Bodart (O.B.E.) has been virtually forgotten.

Ada had a little known connection to Ivanhoe Station in Western Australia and the MLC for Fremantle Denis Doherty.
