Jim_Grundy Posted 20 December , 2002 Share Posted 20 December , 2002 Are there any experts out there or anyone who knows of any sources of information concerning the Non-Combatant Corps? I am researching one local man, a conscientious objector, who was sent to France in May 1916, I presume as part of the Non-Combatant Corps. His family have passed a copy of a letter that he wrote from "Somewhere in France" and he describes living in a very quiet rural part of France, far away from the Western Front. Would anyone have any idea where this might have been? I am guessing somewhere behind the British lines in northern France but that's not narrowing it down too much is it? The man was not one of those who refused to do anything for the war effort and was not one of the 38 sentenced to death in France for disobedience. Can anyone add anything to my search? Any help would be very much appreciated. Season's greetings. Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
