In January 1916 the Military Service Act was passed into law, enforcing compulsory military service on British society for the first time in modern history.
The Act allowed for exemption from conscription via a series of local and county Tribunals.
Using the case papers from the Middlesex County Appeal Tribunal, available from The National Archives, this talk will explore the many different reasons for seeking exemption, underlining the wider social impact of WWl.
