'A master's debate at school set me thinking, and I decided for myself as far as I could at that age. At 16 I joined the Under Thirty movement where I heard a debate on Pacifism. I read a book by Dick Shepherd about the PPU, but did not think of joining it. Also a book called "Why War?" and parts of Aldous Huxley's "Encyclopaedia of Pacifism." At first books were the main influence and then debates developed it.'
