Jim Grundy

Jim was born in 1969 and has lived in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, all his life.

His interest in the Great War is long-standing, attributed to the stories told him about his family's participation in the conflict.

He joined the WFA in 1989, the year after he became a Civil Servant, and began researching the lives of those from Hucknall during the First World War around that time, giving his first talk on the subject to the East Midlands' branch in 1992. Since then, he has managed to avoid writing his book, "Small Town, Great War", which will one day serve as a tribute to the more than 1,700 men who served, over 400 of whom lost their lives.

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
