Head of History and Politics - City of London School
"I have always found that Jim has provided detailed and interesting information on any request made to him. His ability to find war records on former soldiers is impressive and helps bring to life and enrichen the trip that I run to the WW1 battlefield sites. The accounts are interesting and in some cases truly remarkable. I would not hesitate to recommend his services".
"We recently made a journey to the First World War battle sites and war graves in France with a view to visiting our own relations' graves and learn more about how they died. Having given Jim Harkness what little information we had on our relatives, he prepared an itinerary for us with maps and guides which allowed us to drive to exactly where we wanted to go including – most importantly - the fields in which they fell. He also provided us with press cuttings and documentary film footage which made the entire event so much more meaningful. What this man does not know about this area and this period in history is negligible."
