How were spy's involved in World War One?


First German spies that were caught in the UK during World War One were dealt with under various sections of the defense of the Realm Legislation. Then it was for acts committed under this law, that the leaders of the Irish Easter uprising were courts-martialled. Roger Casement who was tried and executed in 1916, was tried under the High Treason Act. Then the condemned spies were shot by firing squad either in the old miniature rifle range in The Tower of London or The Towers ditch. The rifle range was demolished for office space in 1969, and it was later made into car parking space. Finally all of the executed spies were buried in East London Cemetery, in Plaistow, London.
