Hello from Essex

Postby Boxtedboy » 08 Mar 2016 14:24

Greetings to all. I'm Jim, from Essex. My particular interest is the Mahdist Wars, especially the Anglo-Egyptian 1882 and Wolseley's Desert Column in 1884/ 85. My great grandfather served in both, being injured before the walls of Metemmeh, hence the fascination in what the men went through.

Welcome to the forum, Jim! I am sure you have read the excellent Beyond the Reach of Empire by our very own Mike Snook?

You might also like the book I am currently writing, although I will post details nearer the time of its eventual release.
