Women and British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act 1914

Yes, the impact of that law on individuals was very powerfully illustrated in the programme.  I first came across it in Richard van Emden's very interesting book 'Meeting the Enemy: The human face of the Great War'. (Bloomsbury 2013).

Thanks for posting the relevant part of the Act.

Thank you for the reference, Liz.

 

I've done some research since...worth looking up:

 

Page Baldwin, M. Empire: Married Women and the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act Journal of British Studies,  40 (4), 2001, pp. 522-556.

British Nationality Act 1948

The Report of the Select Committee on the Nationality of Married Women, 1923 (contact me if anyone wishes to see this document)
