Masters at War up to 1920

I've finally felt well enough to begin work on my next book, which will be about the members of the Hertfordshire Masters' Lodge (No.4090) who served in the military in the period up to 1920.

It is my intention to finish and publish the book in time for the centenary of the Armistice that ended the fighting in 1918. The individuals I will be writing about had a variety of careers in the military, and although the two local regiments (the Hertfordshire Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment and the Hertfordshire Yeomanry) feature quite heavily, some of the subjects of my book served in other regiments/corps and the Royal Navy.

As almost all the research has already been done, I hope that the book will take about a month to write.


  1. Bob,
    Glad you picked up and are well enough to tackle your Book. I took near a month to plan my Project- with building beginning to-morrow (1st of August)...hope your writing goes well and that you reach your time-line target. Cheers. KEV.

    1. Kev Robertson,

      The research has been going on for over a year, so the writing shouldn't take too long. With luck planning and research should enable both of us to carry our projects forward quickly.

      All the best,
