Imagine being one of the eleven Kaisers spies in the Tower about to be shot, or beheaded. It doesnt sound very pleasing to me. How about you?
Chair of Death
In 1915 Fernando Buschman was placed in the chair of death. Fernando Buschman was placed in the chair because he spied against the Kingdom of England during the great world war of 1914-1918. Buschman was killed in the London Tower during World War 1.
Carl Hans Lody
The first person of the eleven Kaisers spies that were executed in the Tower was Carl Hans Lody. Lody was a 39-year-old German naval officer. Even though Lody didnt have any training in the naval services he was sent Britain because he could disguise himself as an American tourist. When Carl Lody was arrested he was the brought to the Tower of London, and then to when he was executed. Lody behaved like a gentleman. Before he was executed he wrote a letter to his family saying: A heros death on the battlefields is certainty finer, but such is not to be my lot and I die here in the Enemys country, silent and unknown. Tomorrow I shall be shot here in the Tower. I have had Judges, and I shall die as an officer not as a spy.
Buschman was one of the eleven Kaisers spies that were executed in the London Tower , Buschmans and the other ten Kaisers spies stories are being read for the first time. They were the first executions in the London Tower since 1601.
Other executions took place in the Tower of London, however only eleven were spies that were held in the Tower of London.
