Harold Bing

BBC History Magazine - - WWI Eyewitness Accounts -

A paci­fist who joined the No-Con­scrip­tion Fel­low­ship in 1916, Harold was ar­rested as a con­sci­en­tious ob­jec­tor be­fore spend­ing the rest of the war in prison.

Post­war he strug­gled to find work, as many job ad­verts barred con­sci­en­tious ob­jec­tors, but even­tu­ally found a ful­fill­ing ca­reer as a teacher and lec­turer. He re­tained an in­ter­est in peace cam­paign­ing un­til his death in 1975.
