Born in the UK, I have lived and worked as a battlefield guide in the Ypres area for several years. I was also the chairman of the Royal British Legion Ypres Branch from 2014 - 2016.
Over the years i have guided for several tour companies and have a wealth of experience and knowledge. I am used to guiding groups of all sizes, from coach groups to individuals. Some of my previous clients include the BBC, The Vimy Foundation, groups from the British Army, SHAPE and NATO to name but a few. I have even taken Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig on a tour - well the famous actor who portrayed him in the BBC TV series Blackadder Goes Forth, Mr Geoffrey Palmer.
The Great War for me is not just an interest but a passion, and has been since my youth. I am honoured to be a guide in the Ypres Salient. It is very important that the story of the men and women of the Great War continues to be told and that their story should not be dimmed or clouded by the ravages of time. Never have the following words been more relevant:
"We Will Remember Them"
