London 4th August Parliament Street and Whitehall
were thronged with people highly excited and

cloudless sky. Young men in straw hats were in
the majority. Girls in light calico dresses were

Who was Harry Farr?

Who was Harry Farr?
Military Justice   One of the greatest crimes in
warfare is for a soldier to either refuse to
fight or to desert.   You are the commanding
officer. One of your men has deserted.   What do
you do?  
23
The case of Harry Farr
  • I joined the British army in 1910. I was very
    proud to become a soldier because it was
    something that I had wanted to do for a long
    time. To be honest with you I was only 16 in
    1910. They should have never allowed me to join
    the army but I pretended to be 19 and they wanted
    to believe me so I became a soldier. I enjoyed
    serving the country and was very proud of what I
    was doing.
