Tours and staff Rides


Graham has a passion for the Northamptonshire Regiment and has one of the most extensive collections and archives for them. His knowledge not only on the movements and history of this regiment, but on many others can form the basis of tours, Battlefield Tours, Staff Rides, and lectures in the field for many units and actions.

Family history


A central limb of our work is family history, This is not only focused on military family history, but also general family and social history. One of the partners working with Living Military History is a published author following her family back to 1487. Not bad for the surname "SMITH"! We offer talks and hints and tips on family history searches.


Letter of thanks via Oxfordshire Family History Society


We attended your day at the Marlborough School for the first time on Saturday and were very impressed with the organisation and helpfulness of the various stall holders.

We received some very useful information and pointers from the Oxfordshire records Office stand which will hopefully help in the search for information on my father’s family history and service in WW11.

However the best tip was from Malcolm Austen who told us we needed to speak to Graham Bandy on The Living Military History stand. This proved invaluable as Graham had a huge amount of information at his fingertips that was really helpful and gave us a much better insight into the war in Burma and the Far East where my father served. We spent nearly two hours talking and being given hints and tips and contacts where we can obtain further details and every minute was really appreciated.
