Morag’s father called to war

The Third Military Service Act of April 1918 extended the age of conscription to 51, which meant Morag’s father, Peter, aged 47 would go to war. Morag, barely over the loss of her brothers, couldn’t believe her father’s enthusiasm to be at the front. If it wasn’t for his wife he would have volunteered already. Now the government had given him what he wanted – a shot at revenge.
