If some feel the way they do about Morant,
how do they feel about that [born in Aus.]
Lieutenant George Raymond Dallas Moor,
who received the Victoria Cross after intentionally
Shooting four of his own men?
btw: while Australia was in the process of gaining
independence from Britain through federation,
many men from the Aus. colonies were volunteering
in the British army to deny Boers their independence.
Roughly near half of all imperial colonial forces
were sourced from Aus.
As a lawyer I have read up on the case carefully.
I believe Britain chose to set a colonial example to possibly avoid criticism in the UK that would have
been caused by executing a Brit.
Record shows they executed a commissioned officer Brit.
