Note: I cleared this with von Poop before posting, and he said it was Ok. As some of you may know I write books. Well, coming out late may next year is my next book. It covers British Spigot weapons of the Second World War (although there are mentions for other nations). Here's the cover: I've been working on this since 2013, so it has been a long road! However, just after release is the War & Peace 2021 show. They've invited me along to give a talk and hold a book signing event. The details, as I know them are here: War & Peace show - Talks and book signing I can only afford to get two days down there to give talks, so I've elected to take the Friday and Saturday. My plans at present are for the Friday talk to mostly cover the Bombard, and maybe touch on the Hedgehog Hedgehog. The Saturday will cover the PIAT family. This will be the first time I've ever stood up and given a talk, so at the very least you'll get a chance to laugh as I cock it up. After the talk there's a Q&A, followed by the book signing. If there's too many people to deal with questions wise, or if people want a chat, I'll likely do an unofficial chat somewhere immediately afterwards, but of course that all depends on numbers. Here's a list of which spigot weapons I can remember I've included in the book: Blacker 1934 patent, grenade launcher Col Blackers No8 “Arbalest” bomb thrower 29mm Spigot Mortar, Blacker Bombard Hedgehog, anti-submarine weapon Hedgerow, mine clearance device Waterhammer, anti-submarine weapon Mustard Plaster, anti-submarine weapon Baby Bombard, hand held anti-tank weapon Jefferis Gun, hand held anti-tank weapon Stewblac Projector, hand held anti-tank weapon PIAT, hand held anti-tank weapon Petard, demolition mortar Denny Gun, demolition mortar Buffalo, demolition mortar Matilda Hedgehog, demolition mortar Tree Spigot, sabotage weapon.
