    This site is the result of a project undertaken by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) about the conscientious objectors of the First World War. It tells the stories of five young people who opposed World War I and, through diary entries, films, and other contextual material (such as contemporary newspaper stories and the transcripts of tribunals) recounts their experiences from the outbreak of war, to the introduction of conscription and the legislation which recognised conscientious objection. The audiovisual material which accompanies the project include plays, documentaries, audio clips and other useful teaching resources.
