I have seen a report of conscription papers being burnt at a public meeting in Saint Georgeís Square at Huddersfield, there was also a public meeting at New Mill, near Holmfirth, (about 7 miles from Huddersfield) during which a resolution was passed praising the Russian people for their revolution and calling upon workers to take over the means of production in this country. These meeting are not uncommon throughout the war, and seem to involve a mixture of socialists, non-conformists, and pacifists.
This is true, but I suspect that the pro-war lobby was stronger in the south.
For example, "Horsham Council Against Conscription" - probably a "one man and a dog" organisation, there was really no organised Labour and no NCF branch in West Sussex - invited two anti-war speakers down from London. One was Sylvia Pankhurst and the other, IIRC, was an Alex Gossip of the Furniture Trades Union. The open air meeting was due to have been held in the Carfax, which is the central part of Horsham. Sylvia Pankhurst opened her mouth to speak, but was drowned out by boos and cat calls and pelted with rotten fruit etc, actually being hit in the face. Police linked arms to hold back the crowd whilst Pankhurst et al made their getaway, being driven to Horsham railway station.
The local paper "West Sussex County Times" carried this news and also mentions rather a lot about the "Fine Fourths", the local TA battalion. 1/4th Royal Sussex had been in action at "Silver Bay" (Suvla Bay) and a reporter was sent to a hospital at Chichester to interview local men who had been invalided home.
In the Brighton papers I read of a demonstration by the "Blue Boys", wounded soldiers. They intended to stop "Peace Cranks" from speaking at Eastbourne and told the reporter that "they had a rope about them". IIRC wounded New Zealanders were most renowned for attacking peace meetings.
Ken Weller has written on the anti war strands of thought in one part of London, but I think that it was most strongly developed on Clydeside.
