On the TV at the War & Peace Revival Show

Click on the link below to see me in the book signing pavilion at the festival in Folkestone – great to have pictures of my grandfather on the news. Thanks to all of you who came to talk to us and who bought the book.

Sideshows of the First World War – talk at Kings College, London

Fascinating to hear my fellow authors in our talk at Kings College London last Monday – Jules Stewart talking about his book ‘The Kaiser’s Mission to Kabul’ and Antony Wynn talking about the South Persia Rifles and his book ‘Three Camels to Smyrna’. Many thanks to Neil Faulkner for chairing the session and to all in the Sir Michael Howard Centre for the History of War at Kings for arranging the evening and providing the wine!

Chalke Valley History Festival

Really enjoyed our time at the Chalke Valley History Festival – met some great people with lots of family stories about grandfathers, great grandfathers, uncles and great uncles who served in the First World War at Gallipoli and in the Middle East. There are some great photo’s on the festival web site and here: Gino and Sharon Photographs of Chalke Valley History Festival

We were asked to go in WW2 costume so here I am dressed as Rosie the Riveter – great beer at the festival as you can see!

With beer!
