Executed Today: David Stevenson

Second entry in my second themed set: David Stevenson, a British World War I private with one of the worst records of court-martial in the entire British side of the war. In two and a half years of service, Stevenson was court-martialed for AWOL no less than 18 times, for desertion once, and for other offenses twelve times: that’s 31 court-martials. Finally the British Army got fed up and shot him.
