You might enjoy “The Prisoner’s Friend” by “Peter Drake” of Hexham Northumberland, which is about a young WW1 solder who was shot for “cowardice”. It was produced as both a novel and as a one-man play. There’s a nice review here: https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/6991337.wills-legacy/
Thank you, Johnny, I will look into it. I was in Hexham 18 months ago- nice town.
