A child of the 50s. Raised in south east Essex. Wargamed with SEEMS at Rochford until leaving the area to pursue a promising career with HMC&E. Now retired after forty years service. Currently living in south west Essex – not exactly a  globe trotter!

Dubbed ‘Essex Boy’ on the Loose Association of Wargamers forum by a Welshman living in New Zealand. A regular visitor to the ‘A Military Gentleman’ forum and much less regularly to others.

Wargaming: 20mm LoA/WSS and 28/30mm 18thC ImagiNation (the Gateway Alliance). Plus loads of almost started projects in a multitude of scales.

Walking: love water, trees, hills and mountains.
