Military-Research.co.uk is a specialist military history service dedicated to the research of soldiers, sailors, pilots and officers who served during WW1 and earlier conflicts.
Military-Research.co.uk is fronted by Scott Addington. A long time amatuer historian and medal collector, Scott has always been fascinated by the individual stories that make up the wider picture of military history. This intrigue lead him to find out more about the men behind the medals.
Being able to connect people with their military ancestors and see how it touches families, has been the main motivation for growing his business and compiling data to author, ‘For Conspicuous Gallantry’ publications, which are the most complete reference to the winners of the Military Cross and Bars to date.
Scott is currently writing ‘Heroes of the First World War’ which is due for publication by the History Press in time for Christmas 2012 (fingers crossed).
With other projects such as ‘Everyman’s First World War’ and the website www.thegreatwar100.com he is on a mission to open up whole subject of the First World War to children, teenagers and adults alike who would not necessarily read 900 page epics on the subject.
