I am a professional researcher and writer in London, England specializing in military history and military genealogy of members of Britain's Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. In addition I undertake a wide range of researches into the records at the UK National Archives, where I worked for over thirty years.

In addition I have written hundreds of articles and over two dozen books on all aspects of British genealogy. Recent titles have been guides to researching British soldiers and sailors and men and women who served in WW1 for Pen & Sword and Digging Deeper (The History Press, 2012) a guide for genealogists who have gone beyond the basics.
