Call for COs

ImageMy name is Linsey Robb and I am a lecturer in Modern British History at Northumbria University, Newcastle. I am currently embarking on a project to interview men who were conscientious objectors in Britain during the Second World War. I feel that their experiences have not received the public nor scholarly attention they deserve. This is a situation I aim to remedy. I will interview them in a place convenient to them (usually in their own home) and interviews will normally last around one to two hours. Interviewees’ information will be stored, archived and used in accordance with their wishes.

Given the advanced age of these men, I am keen to complete these interviews soon before it is too late and at present I am trying to locate such men. I would be grateful for any assistance.

Thank you in advance.

All best wishes,

Dr Linsey Robb,
