Me in 2017.

Welcome to my userpage. I'm JP Asher—JP is for John Patrick—and I use the Wikipedia handle Cliftonian. My primary focus is Military history ("Milhist"), but I have worked on other subjects as well since starting out in 2008. I was a co-ordinator of the Military history WikiProject in 2013–14. 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 sandboxes. Please feel free to contact me if there's any way I can lend a hand with something. A little about me: I come from the market town of Hitchin, in north Hertfordshire in south-eastern England, and I make my living writing for the Comet, a weekly newspaper based in neighbouring Stevenage.
