Conceived as non-sectarian and non-political the YCV was, in stages: a youth movement with national aspirations; a paramilitary body prepared to take up arms; and core of a British Army military unit fighting in most 1916 -7 battles. Dubbed 'Chocolate Soldiers' and 'odd men out', their story is told via photos and the words of the men themselves.
