Storyboard Text

  • I'M NOT TOUCHING THAT GUN.
  • Horance Eaton, an English national, was a conscientious objector towards the war and fighting. He, however, wanted to support/ help the wounded and suffering. He decided to take a course at St. Johns Ambulance Corps.
  • Horance Eaton decided that he'd do anything to support the war - APART from killing or helping to kill. Therefore he joined the army's Non-Combatant sector located at Richmond Castle, he was also forced to wear army uniform.
  • Horance Eaton, a non-combatant conchie, was made to help fix stables, clean out villages or a solders billet. He faced some issues when a job arose - involving the movement of riffles and ammunition ,off a train, which was too close to military work.
  • NO WAR. NO FIGHTING. NO BLOODSHED.
  • Hornace Eaton, and fellow conscientious objectors were, however, not respected by young women throughout the country. They had said it was 'real' soldiers who they admired, and 'if heaven was inhabited by conscientious objectors they had no wish to go there.
  • If the non-combatants working at the castle (conscientious objectors) did not follow orders. They would be sent to a prison cells or tortured. Some men who refused to wear the uniform where tied up and left outside with only a shirt, to be teased and punished.
  • Wherever they went, usually they had respect. At first they were seen as special kinds of people but they were no more than someone who was determined to stand for their beliefs and was against bloodshed & war.
