Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song about Conscientious Objectors -
Thanks, Starship. I was a conscientious objector in 1957. I refused to do my National Service as it was the time of the Suez fiasco and earned me a six month stay in Glasgow's Barlinnie prison.
The song was just a bit of fun. I also wrote a version of the Big Mansion Hoose recorded by the Kerries. It describes prison life, humouorously.
