Remembered Today:

War Hospitals used to 'treat' military officers and men who opposed the war?


Recommended Posts

Siegfried  Sassoon was admitted to Craiglockhart War Hospital in 1917 following his famous 'soldier's declaration', in which he declined to continue fighting in the war. I am interested to ascertaining details of other officers and men who were similarly admitted to psychiatric hospitals for making similar objections. Obviously the court martial system was another way of addressing such soldiers and figures on those would be useful to hear too for those who made similar protests, in order to contextualise the numbers admitted to psychiatric facilities. Thanks.
