This article re-evaluates one such event: that by the North Tipperary Militia in Ireland in 1856. The event is set within both a heretofore lacking Irish social and political context and the broader context of British Army mutinies as a whole.</p> 2020-02-26T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://bjmh.gold.ac.uk/article/view/1359 Military Identification: Identity Discs and the Identification of British War Dead, 1914-18 2020-03-19T08:56:00+00:00 Sarah Ashbridge Sarah.Ashbridge@hud.ac.uk <p>Following the ratification of the 1906 Geneva Convention, in August the British Army approved the design for its first identity disc which was designed to assist with the identification of dead or wounded soldiers. A 1914 decision to produce the discs from compressed fibre rather than from aluminium resulted in an inability to identify thousands of soldiers during and after the First World War and it remained a problem despite the introduction of the double identity disc in 1916, created at the insistence of Sir Fabian War, founder of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. This article reflects upon the development of the British identity disc system between 1906-1916 and considers why so many soldiers became ‘unknown’.</p> 2020-02-26T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://bjmh.gold.ac.uk/article/view/1360 Halfway Home – The Rehabilitation of New Zealand Second World War POWs in Britain 2020-03-19T08:55:58+00:00 Matthew Johnson mabj105@gmail.com <p>While suffering through monotony and deprivations, New Zealand Second World War POWs mentally escaped their confines by imagining their eventual return home. They envisaged returning to a world free from the woes of captivity and war. This paper examines their rehabilitation in Britain. While Britain was not New Zealand, the prisoners expected it to conform to their idealised version of home. However, this paper argues prisoners experienced difficulties during their rehabilitation, and they were destabilised when confronted with the continued presence of the war and captivity.&nbsp;</p> 2020-02-26T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://bjmh.gold.ac.uk/article/view/1361 Beatrice Heuser & Athena S.
