A nurse, like her famous kinswoman whose name she bore, Florence Nightingale Shore was attacked in a London to Hastings train on Monday, January 12th, 1920, while on her way to stay with friends at St. Leonards. She had a fractured skull and an injury to the brain that could have been caused by the butt-end of a revolver. She was in a coma and died four days later in hospital.
