E. Bertram Lloyd

E. Bertram Lloyd was a friend of Edward Carpenter’s and also of Henry and Kate salt, as well as a member of the Independent Labour Party (ILP). Schreiner came to know Lloyd while she was living in London during the First World War and their primary shared interest appears to have been around a similar stance regarding pacifism, with Lloyd being involved in various organizations like the Union of Democratic Control and the No-Conscription Fellowship also supported by Schreiner.  Interesting, in her 7 March 1916 letter Schreiner asks for his comments on one of her anti-war writings. Overall there is a sense of a London pacifist community that was closely interconnected and mutually supportative.
