Mike is proud of his military heritage despite only pushing a pen during his working life. In WW2 father was in the RAF Regiment whilst mother was a WRAF. One grandfather spent his career in the Royal Navy, having joined aged 16, and the other served with the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry in the Great War. Grandmother’s brother began the Great War in the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars and that is where his interests lie. Always gathering information about Oxfordshire Yeomen from their formation in the late 18th century right through to the modern day but focussing his main efforts on the Great War. He also helps with both the management of our archives and our extensive database of men who have served with the County Regiments over the years.
