A Hertfordshire native, Dan has always had a real passion for military history and considers himself incredibly fortunate to have worked since 2008 full-time in the field. Originally at the Imperial War Museum, he founded and now leads the Herts at War Project and has also worked free-lance on many local and national military history projects including 'Hertfordshire - A County at War'. Most recently he was resident historian and historical advisor on the UK’s Somme Centenary commemorations in Manchester and Westmminster Abbey. Dan also works as an active battlefield guide on the Western Front where he often guides groups around the battlefields of Europe. He is a National Committe member of the WFA and is also currently employed on the CWGC's Living Memory Project.
