Researchteam

I was fortunate to receive funding from SSHRC for my research project(s). As archives closed and international travel was impossible, I hired students to work on sharing some of the research findings I collected in a scouting trip. The biggest project is a transcription of Victorian court martial records. Another pair of students identified military memoirs that could be found online and provided summaries.
