Maude Edwards was sent to Perth Prison in July 1914 to serve a three month sentence for slashing a portrait of King George V which was hanging in the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. She acted in response to Mrs Pankhurst’s failed attempt to lead a deputation to the King at the gates of Buckingham Palace.
