Description

Philip Stanley recalls how his inquiries about smokejumping as alternative service during World War Two led to the use of conscientious objectors for smokejumpers in 1943. He discusses the feeling amongst conscientious objectors that they needed to prove themselves. Stanley also talks about the training at Seeley Lake, Montana, the fire jumps he made, and the equipment that they used.
