I have fourteen years experience in the heritage sector, working with museums, universities, charities and other organisations. I have run a number of projects, making succesful applications for funding, curating exhibitions and providing strategic leadership and direction.
I am an Arts Council Accreditation Mentor, a Trustee of the Buckinghamshire Military Museum Trust and a board member of the Fete Day Company. I ran the Education Service at Banbury Museum for many years following twenty years in Education.
I make over thirty presentations a year for local history societies, universities and military heritage groups. Here are some of the new themes:

‘Oxfordshire during the Second World War’
In time to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Oxf and Bucks Light Infantry attack on Pegasus Bridge during D-Day in 1944, this fully illustrated talk looks at the impact on, and connections to Oxfordshire during the Second World War.
‘Five RAF Indian Pilots of the Great War'
In November 1916, The Royal Flying Corps began an experiment to recruit for the first time Indians resident in Britain. Prior to that, men such as these were unable to enlist owing to a 'colour-bar'. Why was there a change of policy and what would be the experiences of these five men?
