Allen Duncan King

On 23 February 1916, Allen Duncan King applied for total exemption: “I have conscientious objections to killing my fellowmen whom I have no quarrel with or have never seen. It is not that I am afraid for my life, as should I be connected to a military service is not serving in the army. I am prepared to take the consequences of my action, even should it come to the worst + that I am shot. I can only reiterate the statement that under no consideration will I become a soldier.” He was denied exemption, he appealed but the appeal was dismissed.
