"This and other photographs in the archive of Lady Allen may relate to her husband's support for the British Government's policy of appeasement. Clifford Allen was three times imprisoned as a conscientious objector during 1916-17, resulting in permanent damage to his health. He served as treasurer and chairman of the independent Labour Party, and was director of the 'Daily Herlad' between 1925-30. His involvement with the Labour movement was brought to an end by his support for the National Government of Ramsay MacDonald in 1931. Clifford Allen accepted a peerage in 1932 to become Baron Allen of Hurtwood. Despite condemning Nazi brutality and anti-semitism, Lord Allen's strong pacifist beliefs led him to champion appeasement with Germany during the 1930s."hide
