About me[edit]

Hi, I'm Jack (not my real name), I am a retired academic and educationist and I live in the UK. My late father was Greek Cypriot and my mother is English. I feel as if I have been waiting for Wikipedia all my life; ever since I was a boy I have been collecting snippets of information, as well as books, pamphlets, documents and letters, photographs and postcards of people and historic events, etc.

My degrees are in Theology (BD and MTh) and were awarded by the University of Wales. I am a Fellow of the Farmington Institute for Christian Studies, Oxford, a Fellow of the College of Preceptors, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of the Dickens Fellowship and the British Museum Society. For 5 years I was Churchwarden of Church of St. Mary the Virgin, my local church in Baldock, and for a period was a ministerial candidate. I was a member of the Society for Psychical Research for ten years, was the founding Chairman of the Crimean War Research Society, a position I held for twelve years, a Friend of the National Army Museum and a member of the Orders and Medals Research Society and The Ecclesiological Society.

I am married with three adult children, Alexander Timothy Glenn, Darren Mark Glenn and Charlotte Victoria Louise, and with a grandson, Miles Mark Glenn, born on September 11 2008, a granddaughter, Mollie Blossom, born on April 9 2011, and two new grandsons: Zachary Alexander James, born on November 9 2016 and Reuben Christopher, born on 2 June 2017. Among other things I am an enthusiastic amateur historian, having an interest in History, Military History, the Victorian era, including the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan, Church History, archaeology and Biblical Archaeology. I am also a huge fan of the life and works of Charles Dickens, and collect Dickensiana and early editions of his works. In 2012 I was invited to Westminster Abbey to take part in the official Dickens 2012 commemorative service. I have also researched the more interesting members of the Dickens Family, some of whom I have written articles about here. I have appeared on a couple of UK tv programmes, including Collectors' Lot, Going, Going, Gone and Muslim Television Ahmadiyya International.

Over the years I've met and worked with some interesting individuals who are notable by Wikipedia's standards, so I have written articles about them. Quite a few of the people below I have met or known personally. I've even been kissed by two of them!

Jack
