  'FLORA SANDES' MOVIE
ON SERBIAN WW1 HEROINE!
Flora Sandes has a street named after her in Serbia
In the light of recent armistice centennial here's a very poignant project: Mad As Birds Films will turn FLORA SANDES story into a film following the only British woman to enlist as a soldier and fight on the frontline in the First World War. It is based on Louise Miller’s book A FINE BROTHER which tells how she fought alongside the heroic Serbian Army for the Allies after moving from Victorian England to the trenches of Serbia!
FLORA SANDES joined the ambulance unit and with a group of 36 women set off for Serbia to try to aid brave Serbs who were dying in hundreds of thousands under Austro Hungarian guns and also from typhus outbreak. After that she joined the Serbian army as a private thanks to her impressive riding and shooting skills. She rose through the Serbian ranks as the only female officer in Serbian Army and was seriously wounded by a grenade in hand to hand combat. Her injuries put an end to her combat in the war but she remained near the front line to run a hospital. Later on she also wanted to fight for Serbia in WW2 but was interned by Germans. She received many medals from Serbia and is still fondly remembered there as a national heroine and a street in Belgrade is named after her.

  3. What a remarkable woman,that Flora Sandes! I'm sure the serbs consider her a national heroine, one of their own, and they probably did for her what they did for Tesla and other national figures (naming something important after her, statue, museum, etc..).

    The movie is good news for you as a proud serbian citizen. The serbian army and the british born serbian heroine on the screen will arouse a lot of interest.

    1. We have a street in Belgrade named after her and she was also put on our national postal stamps.
      Those were the long lost times when we were actually considered the heroes of Europe... now we're the main villains.... I'm sure you can relate with that.

  4. The Undoing looks good and I like Nicole and Hugh. A movie made of Fora's life would also be pretty awesome!

  5. Flora Sands sounds like a genuine badass. I love stories based on brave, gritty women. I can see why Serbia was so proud of her.

    1. She was so uber cool! I cannot believe the likes of her did not get a lady status from the queen but the likes of pop stars and actors get them every day!

    2. Our world is so ass backward. But, what do you expect when here in the US our former president can pal around with admitted drug dealers and make it look uber cool and we have everyone itching to the the next YouTube sensation. It's sickening.

    3. ah, the good old friendship between Osama and Beyo's drug dealing convict husband :) I'm just about to get suffocated with Michelle's book promoting... I mean just the title of it is soooo freakin' pompous and vain, I cannot even believe it... At least you have lovely Melania to make you proud on foreign state visits. She was so lovely in Paris last weekend!
