Appeal Case of Percy Henry Craddock
Men seeking exemption from Military Service applied to a Local Tribunal. Men and their employers might request postponement or exemption on the grounds that it was in the national interest to continue in their current work. Exemptions from military service were also considered on personal grounds, for example conscientious objection. Initially any appeals against Local Tribunals went to a Central Tribunal set up in November 1915. But from March 1916, after the introduction of compulsory Military Service, the Appeals Tribunals were set up to filter cases away from the Central Tribunal. These documents show how the process worked in the case of Percy Henry Craddock.
