  1. Thank you for posting this. My grandfather (18 years old) and his two older brothers were sentenced to and served hard labour as conscientious objectors in WW1. Nobody ever spoke much about it when I was a child and now they’ve all gone, I can’t ask any questions. My dad wasn’t told much of their story either. I’m proud of them for standing by their convictions as I read some of the personal accounts that are coming to light now.
