Wandering Through Military and Naval History

My name is Mike Parsons.

my background is in IT but in 2008 I took early retirement and took an Honours degree in Military and International History at Salford.

Since then I have worked as a volenteer in two Liverpool archives, The Liverpool Scottish and the King's Regiment in The Museum of Liverpool.

My experience of historians this they lack an understanding of what the web can do, rather generates a fear of errors mainly around Wikipeadia. This site is to show case how the web can facilite a better understanding of history and also serve as a platform for some of my writing on historical matters.
