Welcome to fourteeneighteen. I am Chris Baker.

After 19 years dedicated to research, the last 13 of which have been full-time, and some 11000 soldiers lives rediscovered, I am taking a break: a sabbatical of a year.

My day to day soldier research for private clients will be suspended once I have completed current work in progress.

My sincere thanks to the thousands of people who have engaged me to carry out research on their behalf over the years. I have learned something from every single project and I appreciate the positive feedback that you have always so generously given.

My focus now switches to some of my own research and writing projects, along with the first serious time at leisure I have ever had since I began my working life 40 years ago. You can bet that this will include a return to the battlefields once travel is a practical and safe proposition again.

So … I’ll see you around March 2022!
