Adrian Ridley-Jones

Normandy Battlefield Historian / Member IGBG

Adrian spent 16 years as a professional soldier in the British Army, both in the Infantry (Parachute Regiment) and then in the Royals Signals, serving mainly in Germany but also the Falklands. At the end of the Cold War, he joined a global company to utilise his technical skills, was Head of IT in a city organisation, a teacher and established and successfully ran his own company for 6 years.

In 2017, Adrian moved out to Normandy where he now lives in the heart of the Normandy battlefields, right where the start of the breakout began in July 1944. Indeed an arms cache was found on his land a few years ago and within a few weeks of moving in, he had the Bomb Disposal team around! Adrian is a member of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides and one of our resident Normandy battlefield historians.
