Peace camp photos from 1938

Item type: Photograph Date: 1938 Description: Two photos of Quaker youth peace campers.  One photo shows student peace campers in front of the Friends Meeting House in Long Sutton, August 1938. From 1935-1939 Quaker student peace campers spent weeks in the summer bicycling from town to town in southern England speaking out for peace in public squares and town centres.  Along the way they set up temporary camps where they slept and cooked their meals. The other photo shows Phillip Bagwell speaking at a meeting in Burford. He holds a one pound note in his hand, explaining that twelve shillings out of every pound goes to pay for war.
