“Tommy this, an’ Tommy that” – The British Army 1899-1918

April 23 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM AEST

The talk will look at the component parts of the British Army on the outbreak of the Boer War: the regular army, the militia and the Volunteer Force, and how these different arms each had a part to play. I’ll look at the changes to the army in 1908 which saw the militia and Volunteer Force replaced by the Special Reserve and Territorial Force respectively, and how the army massively evolved during the First World War.

I have a keen interest in military history and in particular the British Army and its campaigns between 1850 and 1920.  I have been researching British soldiers for over forty years and have delivered dozens of talks on various aspects of British military history. Professionally, I have worked for Findmypast in a content licensing role since August 2010.
