First World War stories from the Isle of Man - Manx Conscientious Objectors in the First World War
The refusal to take part in conflict on moral or religious grounds was a very serious matter at the time of the First World War, which contributes to their stories often being lost in history. However, the stories of a few Manx conscientious objectors can be discovered and one is told here, which sadly ended in death.
This is one of the stories which features in the First World War exhibition recently opened at the Manx Aviation and Military Museum near Ronaldsway.
It is presented by the director of the Museum, Ivor Ramsden.
