In professional life chartered accountant. Since secondary school interested in military history, especially the Western Front of The Great War. Every year I visit a part of the front, from Flanders Fields to the Voges in France. Member of The Western Front Association and Association Nationale 1914-1918. In private I publish my own books. In 2020 I wrote a roadstory about visiting eight WWII concentration camps in Europe with my father several years ago: 'Langs de wegen naar de hel' (Along the roads to hell).
