Edward Henry Pedris
National Hero who awakened a nation and died at the hands of the British
July 2015 marked the 100th anniversary of the brutal execution of Edward Henry Pedris. 27 years old at the time of his death, Edward Henry Pedris’ death at the hands of the British was one of the most tragic events recorded during the tenure of the British. Records indicate that Pedris’ blood soaked chair he sat on during his execution was left in the Welikada Prison as a deterrent to others who may connive against the British, but in fact it had the opposite effect as it prompted his contemporaries to begin their struggle for independence from the British.
