Field Punishment Number 1

After hearing that one of my student's great grandfathers recieved Field Punishment Number 2 for sharing confidential information during World War 1, I became curious about what field punishments were. This led me to find the film about a New Zealand conscientious objector, Archibald Baxter, who was repeatedly given Field Punishment Number 1 and who suffered numerous other abuses for believing that war is wrong.

What couragious people there are in this world.
