Isabel Showler on her Experiences as a Pacifist in the 1940s

This nine-minute audio clip features Isabel Showler (who was interviewed with her husband Frank, though he does not appear in this clip) talking about her choice to take up left-wing pacifist politics in the late 1930s. She also discusses some of her experience with the left-leaning Student Christian Movement at that time, and some of the ways that her pacifism played out for her during the early period of the Second World War, particularly when national registration was ordered in August 1940 and she declined to take on the task in her workplace of getting all of the employees registered.
