This is an account of life - and illness and death - in and around the military training camp at Kinmel Park near Abergele in northern Wales that was set up in 1914. Soldiers were trained and detained there, and Conscientious Objectors found themselves based there.

Author Biography:
Robert H. Griffiths is a former police officer turned local historian. He lives in Denbigh.

Further Information:
The camp had an effect on the surrounding area, too, with road accidents, burglaries, and musical entertainments being visited on the local population! The author Robert Graves was at Kinmel Camp for a time.
This readable book is as much as anything the author’s tribute to three members of his family who were involved in the First World War, including Robert Owen, who died aged eighteen before completing his initial military training at Kinmel Park Camp.
