Elizabeth had experienced the war first hand. She was angry at the men that had pressed them in to the conflict but believed Britain had no choice but to finish the job it had started. Her son John had spent 2 years 7 months in prison as a conscientious objector but would soon arrive home at Tay Bridge Train Station. At her side was John’s wife Rebekah and resting on his crutches was James. Despite the odds Elizabeth’s small family had survived the war and as John walked along the platform James held out his hand to welcome John home.
