Who saved the horses but not his boat?

What name connects Benfleet Hall in Essex with the one in Surrey?

Who fought with the Canadian ‘Rough Riders’ in the First World War?

Mark Thres was educated at Brentwood School, The College of Librarianship Wales, Aberystwyth, and The Open University. He married Liz Morgan in 1972 and has two lovely daughters.

Mark’s activities were restricted in recent years due to the onset of Parkinson’s disease. Putting together this book, which he hopes will inform and inspire folks to undertake their own research, has proved therapeutic in his case. Not an obsessive by nature, he will admit to supporting Wolverhampton Wanderers.
