I have been building this website since 2007 and regularly add new material documenting my research. You can see information about the latest additions and 'work in progress' further down the page.

The menu breaks the resources down into areas of interest. There is a short introductory page for each area so you can see what is available. You can access the resources from the menu or click on the images further down the page. You are also welcome to contact me via the feedback page to make comments to be added to the visitors book, to report errors or to ask questions. I will be pleased to hear from you and will help if I can.

Here's me pretending to aim a quadruple 40mm Bofors gun on USS Cassin Young at Boston Massachusetts; sadly they wouldn't let me fire it.
