Description Edit | History

Born in Scotland at Lauder in 1915 and moved to London to join the Metropolitan Police in the late 1930's. During the second world war, he served with many of his police colleagues in the RAF and was a squadron leader when the war ended.
He returned to the Police to resume his career as a Special Branch Officer and it was in this capacity that he moved to Dover in 1946.

His interest in model soldiers went back to his childhod. His interest flourished in the pre-war years in London when his opponent was Lieutenant - Later Brigadier - Peter Young. After the war he continued these activities in the British Model Soldier Society (BMSS). Though primarily known today as a wargamer and writer he was a superb military modeller long before the vast array of professional modellers and commercial products appeared.

Wargaming is the subject for which he was most widely known. In the 1950's the wargaming hobby underwent a massive resurgenece. It started largely in America with the appearance of the Wargame Digest whose subscribers, 45 in number, included a dozen or so from Britain of which Grant was one.

A early member of the Society of Ancients, he served on the committee before becoming editor of Slingshot from 1969 to 1975. He was President from 1975 to 1977 and then became a life Vice President on retiring from that office.

( excerpted from an Obituary by his son, C.S. Grant, from Military Modelling magazine , July 1979)
