Welsh solders played significant roles in the great battles of the Somme and Ypres. By suffering alongside their fellows from all parts of the British Isles, Welsh soldiers began to feel less Welsh and more British, less provincial, less "different." There was a growth in national consciousness that received an enormous impact from the Conscription Bill of 1916, and by the end of the war more that 280,000 Welshmen had served some time in the armed forces. Not all the people of Wales supported the government. Attempts at producing more coal at no increase in pay led to a strike in the South Wales coalfield in the summer of 1916. The enormous increase in coal industry profits was not being passed on to the miners, who naturally wished to have their share. Over two hundred thousand miners in Britain refused to be intimidated by the Munitions of War act that made striking a criminal offence.
