I almost forgot in all the excitement of my holiday that quite recently one of the books for which I drew the maps has won a prestigious award from The Society for Army Historical Research as 'Best First Book'. The author, Randall Nicol, phoned me up to thank me which pleased me enormously. I am quite lucky with Helion & Co as unlike many military publishers who do not mention the cartographer I get credit for drawing the maps and quite often a mention in the foreword or acknowledgements. Randall is now working on a second book and is sure our paths will cross again.
A couple of the maps from "Till the Trumpet Sounds Again: The Scots Guards 1914-19 in Their Own Words."
