Sgt J P Asher, IDF, 2014

Welcome to my userpage. My name is John Patrick Asher and I use the Wikipedia handle Cliftonian. My primary focus is Military history ("Milhist"), but I have worked on other subjects as well. I was a coordinator of the Military history WikiProject between 2013 and 2014. You can use the menu at the top right (beneath your search bar) to navigate easily between pages in my userspace, including my talk page and library. Please feel free to contact me if there's any way I can lend a hand with something.

A little about me: I was born in Hammersmith in west London and moved around the world a lot during my youth, living in Switzerland, the UK and Zimbabwe and spending much time in the United States. I am an Old Westminster, specifically an Old Liddellite (2004–07), and in footballing terms a Lutonian. Between 2012 and 2014 I served in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and despite the language barrier achieved the rank of sergeant. I married the beautiful Dalia on 31 December 2013, and live in Givatayim, just outside Tel Aviv.
