Autumn 2014 - The scanning of 1000's of photographs for the Imperial Awards series is moving well ahead and I am more than pleased with the content of many rarities.

Also I am sorting through & Editing of the forthcoming Bravery Volume 2 Book Chapters; next up will be the scanning of 100's of photographs & illustrations for above V2.

So plenty to keep me busy on the New Book Projects for 2014 plus in the evenings I have recently started research on writing a personal Book Project not shown on my official book Website.

This book will be on the famous leading English High Executioner, Albert Pierpoint, who took part in over 600 Executions, more than any other Hangman in British History, from circa 1933 through to the early 1950's

Pierpoint actually executed the Infamous Nazi Beast of Belsen, the SS Commandant Josef Krammer & Urma Griese as well as members of the SS Camp Guards; Gestapo & German Spies and the infamously so-called British Traitors, Lord Haw Haw ( William Joyce ) and John Amery !

I have inherited from my late Father most of Executioner Albert Pierpoint's official Death Warrant's, Unpublished official documents, correspondance and photographs, plus interview material and gruesome important historical relics such as the actual Executioner Albert Pierpoint's original Hangman's Official Rope & Hood and related equipment plus his Gold Pocket Watch & chain worn and used at the Executions together with original relics from infamous Nazi War Criminal SS Colonel Josef Krammer's Commandant's Office at the Belsen Concentration Camp, all of which had been presented by British Army Staff prison Guards at the Belsen Concentration to Albert Pierpoint at the time of the Hamlin War Crimes Trial Executions in Germany.

Due to the size & value of this truly comprehensive Albert Pierpoint Archive
I have had to deposit it all in my local Town Bank Vault in a metal trunk. This project will be a quite slow process due to having to photocopy and scan all the material to be used so the originals can stay in the Bank Vault safe from fire or theft.

That said the book could be ready as soon as spring 2016.
