This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
Life for John’s wife and family
Rebekah agreed with her husband’s views but like other wives of Conscientious Objectors, life was difficult. They had the support of the Dundee Joint Committee Against Conscription which held regular meetings voicing their opposition to war, highlighting conscription issues and abuses, while maintaining public awareness of the plight of COs across the country. They provided much needed financial support for all the dependents of Dundee COs.
