A little about my background

Although I worked for nearly thirty years in the law and related fields my main passion has always been for military history, with a bias toward the high Middle Ages and Tudors. Living in the heart of the historic Anglo Scottish Borderland stimulated my interest in 'The Steel Bonnets' - the sixteenth century border reivers. As a boy I read Scott and classic accounts such as 'Border Raids and Reivers' by Borland and latterly George MacDonald Fraser's 'The Steel Bonnets'.
