Refusing to Kill: Bristol's World War 1 Conscientious Objectors
UK delivery £3.50 - Free delivery on orders over £40!
Winter is perfect for cosying up with a nice cup of tea and a book. So we're giving you 20% off any book from our wide selection of radical literature when you purchase any of our fine bone china mugs!
Over 580 men from the Bristol area refused to fight in World War 1. They claimed the status of conscientious objector (CO) for moral, religious or political reasons. Some agreed to take non-military roles while others spent much of the war in prison, often under harsh conditions.
This booklet, and the exhibition on which it is based, tell the story of these COs and the men and women who supported them. It also briefly considers COs in World War 2 as well as the position for present day members of the armed forces who develop conscientious objections.
