Archibald Baxter is the best known conscientious objector and his story is well documented in his biography We will not Cease. However, many other men in the First and Second World War took a pacifist stance and they and their families were persecuted for it. A century after the First World War is time to seek out these stories of conscience and bravery and the persecution it brought to these men and their families. The benefits of the research are to allow family members to tell stories of bravery not recorded in traditional commemorations of world wars.
