Kevin was born in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, in 1958, and for over thirty years worked in the steel and heavy industries. Now working in Packaging and Logistics (Chemical) as a Production/Process/Warehouse and Maintenance Manager since being made redundant in August 2009.
Kevin's main area of interest is the West Yorkshire Regiment - in particular the 15/17th West Yorkshire Regiment, and the period between December 1917 till March 1919. His interest in the Great War stems from research into his Grandfather's war service some nine or ten years ago, although he has taken a keen interest in local history for a large number of years. He is currently researching the Thornaby War Memorial, and how the Great War affected the social aspects of everyday life in the Thornaby district.
Kevin has been married for 26 years. He has two daughters and one son. A recent addition to the family mean that Kevin and his wife are now the proud Grandparents of a beautiful baby Granddaughter.
