About The Author

I live in Scotland and am by profession a teacher of history.

My main interest is 19th century British history and I always use original sources to research my books. I don’t copy from existing books. I believe that gunmaking isn’t just about the guns themselves, their history and development must be viewed within the correct historical context to appreciate the changes that have taken place.

My books have all received critical acclaim for their academic and comprehensive approach to the subject.

Research Service

If you have a British gun and know who it was built for, I can probably research a biography of the owner. I charge £50 for this research. No result, no fee.
