Hello and welcome to Sense and Sentimentality!

This website is intended to provide a point-of-contact for people interested in my research into the soldier-horse relationship during The Great War. It is my intention to populate it with all manner of interesting images, writing and links, as well as updates on my current projects. At the moment I am working on a review of Ann Hyland’s The Warhorse in the Modern Era and on a blog for the AHRC funded Pets and Family Life project website. I continue also to work on transforming my research into a book. Please take a look at my blog for a taster of what shape these will take. I’m also learning the art of book restoration and repair.
