Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song about Conscientious Objectors -
These were soldiers, not Conscientious Objectors. For many of them, the horrors of trench warfare proved unbearable. If they were driven from their posts or fellow soldiers, they could face a charge of cowardice or desertion, trial by court-martial and execution by firing squad.
306 soldiers executed at dawn have now received posthumous pardons.
Sorry, but I don't recognise this song.
