Those Who Refused: Conscientious Objectors in the First World War - Discovery Museum 18 Apr 15

In 1916, the Military Service Act first introduced conscription to Britain. Throughout the First World War, about 16,000 men conscientiously objected to military service, many with religious motives, including the Quakers.

During this talk, Dr André Keil from Durham University will discuss the perception and treatment of these conscientious objectors.
1-3pm. £4 per person; free for students with valid ID.
