Michael made his journey to the Somme in 1977, with a ‘pioneer’ battlefield visitor who had begun his wanderings in 1960. From that point, High Wood exerted a magnetism that refused to be ignored. Michael has produced two memorial books; Lander’s War (a memoir) and contributed to the publication of Matron at War, as well as two local history books for Knowle, Solihull, The Price a Parish Paid and The Further Price a Parish Paid. He now lives in Nottinghamshire and gained an MA in British World War One Studies in 2013.
