Moved by Conflict: Object 2: Christmas Card

In 1914 there was great enthusiasm for the war. Many were motivated by patriotism to join up and fight. There was also great social pressure on men to enlist. Some men not in uniform were handed white feathers in the street, accusing them of cowardice. (ref B1863)
