Just published – “Refusing To Kill – Bristol’s World War 1 Conscientious Objectors”

This booklet, like the exhibition on which it is based, tells the story of the 580 men from the Bristol area who for moral, religious or political reasons refused to fight in World War 1 – and the men & women in the local community who supported them.

As well as individual stories, the booklet includes the names, addresses and occupations of all 580 conscientious objectors, and re-prints of rarely seen documents from local archives.

Full details are availaible on the Remembering The Real World War 1 website here, including a link to online purchase of the booklet.
