Regina v Lyons [2011] EWCA Crim 2808; [2011] WLR (D) 345

“A person who, having voluntarily entered military service, sought to be discharged from further service on the ground of conscientious objection was subject to the requirements of military service and military discipline until his claim had been established. The giving of notice of appeal did not justify a refusal to obey a lawful command pending the determination of the appeal.”
