Jeremy Banning BEng (Hons), MA

Welcome to my website. I am a military historian and researcher specialising in the First World War. Principal interests are the Battle of Arras and underground tunnel warfare.

I have collaborated on a number of books along with acting as principal researcher for many others as well as BBC television and radio documentaries. I have an in-depth knowledge of the archives. I am a founder member of the La Boisselle Study Group conducting archaeological and historical investigation into a small area of preserved Somme battlefield.

Television credits include showing Hugh Dennis around the battlefields for the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? (2012), BBC Wales series Coming Home with actor Robert Glenister (2012), fashion designer David Emmanuel (2014) and Hollywood actor Ioan Gruffudd (to be broadcast autumn 2016).
