This is an account of the experiences of my father, George Andrew Moran, who was an Absolute Conscientious Objector during the First World War. He was one of the 35 sentenced to death for refusing to obey an order under the Military Service Act of 1916.

The events recorded are a true account of what happened to my father, as told to me. Little has been written about the treatment of these men.

I envisage that the overall message to be conveyed by such a presentation, would be that the destructive effects of the First World War-linked with the Second World War, have yet to be worked out in terms of ongoing geo-political conflicts, the depletion of the male gene pool, the changing social-economic fabric, and environmental deterioration: certainly, they have yet to be fully recognized and assessed.
