How you can help

Thanks for your interest in the Men in the Shed; hopefully, you’ve found the website interesting & you’ve now arrived at this page wondering: “How can I help with this research?”

There are three ways in which you can help…

Tell people about

Obviously, the more people that know about the site, the more chances that there are that someone will have some further information to add; so please, share widely!

Share your information

It may well be that you have some information relating to one of the 18 soldiers that I’m researching. If this is the case, then I’d be really interested to hear from you.


From the point that I first saw the names on the shed wall until today (23/5/2016), this project (including the hosting of this site) has been completely self-funding & the trips to France have been (largely) my annual holidays. My wife hasn’t complained too much as it’s provided her with many (and much needed!) snore-free nights’ sleep!

However, if you would like to make a contribution to the continuation of the research, then this would be greatly appreciated. Please click on the following button which will allow you to make your donation via PayPal. Don’t worry if you don’t have a PayPal account, you can also pay there via Credit Card.

Please note that you need to fill in all of the fields (including address, etc) otherwise PayPal doesn’t appear to allow you to proceed; when testing, I found the same issue if I used a card or email address that’s linked to my personal PayPal account! Technology, eh?
