Urbi et Orbi: Apologia

Dear Readers (both loyal and disloyal!),


Firstly, please allow me to apologise to you.


I have been unfaithful! I have engaged with the Twitter machine (@constantg2222) and have neglected this site for some time no! And I won’t tell you all that it has ended, but I do feel that there is more room now for a parity of sorts.


I have also recently finished my PhD thesis, which means that my return to this site will be both more fulsome and prolonged than recent bursts (which coincided with finishing off chapters of same and papers!). My research looks at possible connections between PTSD and British ex-servicemen soldiering in the Empire after the Great War. I would expect to see  more than a few passing references to this also.


I would like to possibly undertake a prolonged research project, or series of blog essays exploring a particular sub genre of military/policing/organisational history, over the enxt few months, so please subscribers, if you have any interesting ideas, don’t be backwards about coming forward!


Thanks  so much for reading this and again thanks for bearing with me over the last few years. A return to normal programming has recommenced!
