The piece is entitled “The First Half Hour” .

It commemorates the opening minutes of the Battle of the Somme. My paternal grandfather, Private Fred Tregurtha (No. 28782) took part in this. He was one of the 11th Battalion East Lancashire Regiment, otherwise known as the ‘Accrington Pals’

Welcome to my WordPress site…

Hi there.

This is my new web domain – Apple ditched their web hosting last year, so I’ve upped sticks and arrived here on WordPress. This site is also born out of me learning WordPress for two courses I teach on: BA (H0ns) Design and BA (Hons) English Language & Literary Studies, both at the University Centre at Blackburn College, UK. There’s quit a bit of old stuff on here – it’s what I have to hand, but I’ll be posting new material up shortly – animation, interactive and written…

Anyhoo hope you like,

Laters, M.
