Why ex-UK soldier is now a peace activist who thinks war is a racket
Spike, a former soldier in the British Army, talks about his experiences in Northern Ireland and about why he is now a peace activist and a member of Veterans for Peace UK. His speech and poem took place at Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth College as part of What would I have done in WW1? - a play exploring the reasons why some young people joined the fighting in World War 1 and others did not.
