Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ----------Thudtfoy, April 77, 1972 THE IEIHBR1DCI HESALO _ 25 Soldiers shot for cowardice Lake Louise issues overplayed LONDON (AP) A Brilisli writer's plans to document an obscure chapter of the Firsl World execution o[ 300 British soldiers on charges of cowardice and been complicated by an official 100-year secrecy rule. The ban means Hint details of the courts-martial of the exe- cuted men cannot be made pub- lic before Hie next century. William Moore, military histo- rian nnd former journalist, said today tlie becrecy rule would not prevent completion o[ his book, Tlie Tliin Yellow Line. lie said he would base (lie work instead uu interviews willi soldiers and officers saw tlie men die by firing squad. One reason (or enforcement of the ban is that relatives of the executed soldiers are still living and many arc unaware of the circumstances of the mens' deaths. Some believe the sol- diers died in aclion, Moore said. He says many of those sliol were young ami never should liave been killed; under modern conditions they would have re- ceived psychiatric treatment. Moore said the British high command realized firing squads sverc no deterrent to cowardice, and by liiKi. soldiers were re- ceiving trifling sentences for of fences that earlier carried tlic death penalty. The death penalty tor deser- tion was abolished by the army before the Second World War and lilllc lias been published about the firing squads of llu1 First World War. A defence ministry spokes- man said details of all conrt- marlial cases arc kepi with the public records office and sub- ject to the 100-year secrecy rule. jMosI public records ere kept secret only 30 years. .MANY BOATS The number of fishing boats In is estimated at CALGARY (Cl'l Knvlron- menlal issues involving the pro- posed Village hake Louise pro- ject arc "overplayed and a red says Struan Holiert- sou. chairman of Ihe board of Village Lake Louise Lid.
