After lurking for just a short time I've registered as a member so here's a little bit about myself.

My name is Roger Newsome and I live in North Yorkshire, England. I have had a passion for military history since a very young age. Besides collecting books on the subject I also paint military miniatures between 54mm - 120mm in size. Which is what sparked my interest in the American Civil War. Previously my main interest was World war One. Through my modelling hobby I discovered Civil War uniforms and figures, then came the books and the beginnings of a new obsession.

I am 42 years old, married with three children and left the Royal Navy after 23 years service in 2004. I still work at sea on a month on month off basis. Unfortunately with no internet access. I usually take at least two Civil War books with me to sea and make notes to follow up stuff when I return. Please be patient when I return from sea with a heap of questions:D
