Tim Stoneman

A Westcountryman by birth, Tim had a maritime interest from an early age and later served in the Royal Navy for 35 years as a Gunnery and Air Defence Officer. This included service at sea in the Falklands and in the First Gulf War, as well as deployments afloat to many other parts of the world, and shore postings working with colleagues from the British Army, Royal Air Force and other nations. During his naval career, his life-long interest in naval history led him to take part in several battlefield studies, initially as the maritime expert, and subsequently broadening his interests to encompass land and air campaigns of the 20th Century.

Tim has guided tours to battlefields and remembrance sites since 2008, leading school parties, groups of veterans, serving military and the general public. Whilst preferring to look at battlefields with a nautical or amphibious flavour, such as Gallipoli, Dunkirk or Normandy, he is equally at home guiding on the Somme, in Flanders or other land-locked regions. Tim is an accredited member of the Guild of Battlefield Guides and currently serves as the Guild Secretary.
