James Aitchison

James Aitchison

James has always been interested in all things military and joined the Army aged 16 serving with the Royal Artillery in Northern Ireland, Germany, Denmark and with the UN in Cyprus. In 1994 he joined the police and served as a uniformed officer before retiring in 2019. For the past three years James has drawn on his military experience working as a fitness instructor running Military-style Bootcamps in Bath.

As a Battlefield Guide, James is able to share his love of military history. He has accompanied veterans and their families to Normandy and the site of the D-Day Landings, and led tours to the WWI battlefields along the Western Front. He has a particular interest in 19th century conflicts spending time in South Africa exploring the Anglo-Zulu wars. James is extremely keen to ensure the younger generation are aware of our military history, and visits schools to talk about both the First and Second World Wars and Remembrance.
