About me

As a former pupil of Sandbach School, I am myself an Old Sandbachian. Though I now study for a History (BA) at the University of Oxford, I many times sat in the same classrooms and walked the same corridors as those 36 men recorded on the Schools 1914-1918 memorial. 

At University, I have studied papers as diverse as Anglo-Saxon Britain, Renaissance Europe and papers including Gender, Sexuality, Anthropology and Art. I hope that this limited but varied experience will ensure that I can produce a comprehensive and accurate body of research which does justice to its subject and that look upon evidence with, what a professor of mine once called, my "unique historical voice". 

I have written and contributed to a number of articles, books and blogs on the subject of the Great War (including the BBC, Commonwealth War Graves Commission, local newspapers and the work of Times Best Selling Authors). I have recently began the research phase for my undergraduate history thesis on the symbolism of boxing during the First World War.
