My dad used to tell me stories of what he experienced during the second world war. I often heard it said he never came back the same man. He was called up again in 1951 and appealed as a conscientious objector. He sought references from his WW2 commanding officers and although they disagreed with his position, to a man they praised his efforts during that war and supported him. He won the appeal. He made notes of his life in the army (and his early life in Lochwinnoch) and I turned those into a book I published and circulated to the family. You will find these recollections and a selection of poems he wrote in the Articles & Videos section.
