Life after Ruskin



Politics/trade union activity: ‘“I am a conscientious objector, and proud of
it, whether disfranchised or not, and I am a member of the Friends’ Ambulance Unit,
having been stationed at York in that capacity since August, 1915.” He was studying
German language and thought that all artificial barriers to workers receiving the best
education must be broken down.’ Working at the military hospital in York he was granted an exemption certificate from fighting as he was deemed to be doing work of national importance.
