I'm 72 and retired. I started my real working life by joining the Corps of Royal Engineers in 1969, serving 22 years, and ending that career as a Warrant Officer Class 1 Regimental Sergeant Major. I then when on to a further 20 years or so in Construction Health and Safety Management and Consultancy. I retired in 2012. I live in Nottingham with my wife Pam. I have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. I have always been interested in art/illustration and have a great interest in dinosaurs and 18th and 19th military uniforms.
