A British citizen of the group subsequently called in the newspapers "enemy alien Britons", he volunteered for the Army, hoping for his language skills to be utilised but was initially appointed as a Private in an Infantry regiment. However, as an enemy alien Briton, he was soon transferred to a non-combatant corps (N C C) where conscientious objectors were usually sent, with which he served in France for a few months, where NCCs were not well regarded. He was soon transferred again to an Infantry Works Battalion in England which he calls “a political concentration camp” where the majority of the men were conscripts of enemy alien parentage, in spite of being British born, or naturalised citizens.
