A Quaker Conscientious Objector Wilfrid Littleboy’s Prison Letters, 1917-1919
Edited with an extensive introduction by Quaker historians Ben Pink Dandelion and Rebecca Wynter. Birmingham accountant Wilfrid Littleboy, later to serve on many influential British Quaker committees, was an absolutist conscientious objector during the First World War. His prison letters – especially in this time of isolation, restricted movement, separation from family and friends, and a new awareness of the importance of mental health – are uplifting, generous and inspirational. Now published!
We are delighted to be able to offer our gift cards – perfect presents for every reader. More details.
