    Sounds like you think along the same lines as me. I have much more respect for the small memorial in Tavistck Park for the Concientious Objectors who refused to fight, but still volunteered for such dangerous duties as front line Ambulance Driving, etc. than the Cenotaph which people forget is also there as a memorial to those who were conscripted. Those who were sent into hopeless situations. These men were not necessarily volunteers. They had no choice in the matter. The 'Conchies' (and their families), on the other hand were villified for keeping to their principles of Peace.
