Activities for the Armed Services
The United Kingdom
In 1956 the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom granted Christian Scientists exemption from compulsory medication. "Since the time this exemption was granted," writes the Manager of the British Branch of the Christian Science Activities for the Armed Services, "it has been a great joy to learn that service personnel are not only registering themselves as Christian Scientists, but are declining to undergo vaccination, inoculation, and medication on the grounds that they are Christian Scientists. Their stand for the truth is helping them grow spiritually, is gaining them respect, and is strengthening the position of the Christian Science church in the Armed Forces." [Note: These exemptions are granted only in the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom and of the Netherlands.]
The British Branch of Armed Services Activities, which has its headquarters in London, has thirteen Christian Science Ministers and five Christian Science Representatives, who assist Christian Scientists in the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom. The Ministers and Representatives in the United Kingdom also serve Christian Scientists in the United States Armed Forces who are stationed in England and Scotland.
