Andy Lonergan is a member of the Northamptonshire branch of the Western Front Association and a friend of the Centre for First World War studies at Birmingham University.
He is also a member of the Salonika Campaign Society.
Originally gaining an interest of the Great War in his teens via the comic strip ‘Charlie's War'! further reading has altered his view of the Great War from this simplistic ‘Lions led by Donkey's' concept. Andy came to the subject in more depth in 2003 when his interest was sparked in Lt-General Snow and Major-General Forestier-Walker.
He has also been compiling information about 21st Division since 2005 and has a website dedicated to this research at www.21stdivision1914-18.org.
Andy often speaks on these three subjects at WFA branches.
