August Update from BMH

Our great British Summer is upon us, at least for another couple of weeks. Much has been happening behind the scenes at BritishMilitaryHistory.

In no particular order:

  1. I am completing an update of the Order of Battle for the 6 South African Armoured Division in Italy, which is due for publication soon;
  2. The update of the pdf documents on the Armoured Divisions in the North-West Europe campaign is also nearing completion;
  3. I have recently visited the National Archives at Kew, and have photographed over 4,000 pages of documents. These include work on 2 West African Brigade for a forthcoming publication, and other RAF related pieces of research. There is about a year's worth of work to process these alone;
  4. I am assisting the Royal West African Frontier Force Association with development of their internet strategy, and will be hoping to enhance their presence and profile;
  5. I attended the 72nd Kohima Memorial Service at York Minster this July, and have some projects to consider with regards to assisting the Kohima Museum in York;
  6. There are photographs attached of my display at the recent VJ Event at Cobbaton Combat Collection, so if you know of an event which you would like me to attend, please contact me;
  7. There are other developments in the pipeline, so I am managing my projects carefully to avoid taking on too much at once. Watch this space.
