Adventurer, historian, horseman, sailor, Barry Armitage undertakes epic journeys that shaped history. Pitting himself and his companions against achievements of historic men of action he connects the past to the present through these “Boys Own” adventures, discovering more about himself, his friends and his country along the way. Impatient, curious and daring, Barry is always up for what most would consider a harebrained scheme!

”To push your personal boundaries and to get to the point where you feel that knot of fear in your chest... that dreadful feeling that you may fail ...and then push on, is a special place. The reward is huge; a little nugget of self pride that you can keep tucked away to feel good about yourself when things aren’t going so well”
