As an award-winning guide and accredited member of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides, Badge No. 39, Frank is well qualified to lead you on bespoke tours across the hallowed battlefields of Europe.
For over three decades Frank has had a successful career in the creative industry as a designer and creative director.
During that time, Frank also served 10 years in the 70 (Essex Yeomanry) Signal Squadron, part of 71st (Yeomanry) Signal Regiment (V), and had the distinction of having been the youngest qualified tradesman in the regiment by 12 months, at the age of 19.
Franks interest in battlefield guiding came from his father who served in BOAR and grandfathers who fought in the WW2 – one in the Royal Artillery on the Western Front and the other in the Wehrmacht on the Eastern Front.
Frank has been battlefield guiding since 2006, specialising in Waterloo, the Great War and WW2. He also played an active role within the Guild of Battlefield Guides. In 2011 was proud to be the first recipient of the Richard Holmes Memorial Award for Services to the Guild.
Frank currently guides for Anglia Tours based in Essex and is a member of the Western Front Association, Essex Yeomanry Association, and a Life member of the Royal Signals Association.
