Australian Conscientious Non-compliers during the Vietnam War

During the Vietnam War Years from 1965 to 1972 there were eligible young men for military call-up whose conscientious beliefs did not permit them to comply with the 1964 National Service Act (NSA) for military conscription. This gallery is devoted to a better understanding of these conscientious non-compliers or draft resisters. Specifically, it identifies some of them and presents the reasons for their non-compliance.
