When William was just seven years old, his grandfather, a marksman, gave him a prized coin that he had won in a competition. Ever since, William has passionately collected and cared for wartime artefacts from right around the world. Though he is a staunch anti-war advocate, he is fascinated by military influence on technology and innovation, and is keen to share his insights into the evolution of weaponry and technology advancements with museum visitors.
