About Me

For the greater part of the centenary of the First World War, I was the First World War Diverse Histories Researcher at The National Archives (Kew). There, I researched and disseminated information about various aspects of the conflict – from women, to medicine, to disability, and commonwealth troops.

Disability caused by, and medicine used in, the First World War are my main areas of research. With a specialism in prosthetics.

I now work as an independent researcher, and have a forthcoming publication with Pen and Sword entitled: Images of The National Archives: Armistice.
