About Bob Osborn
   


 

 

Bob Osborn, our featured author, was born in 1949 and grew up at Enfield Lock, Middlesex, England. His family lived opposite the Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) where all his family had worked - dad, mum, aunts, uncles, grandfathers and great grandfathers were all "Lockies". Bob's interest in guns and weapons began before he went to school - he remembers playing in the field that separated his house from the factory with the constant sound of rifles and machine guns being tested on the factory ranges. "It simply added to the realism of our 1950's games of war" he recalls.

He began to become seriously interested in bayonets only a few years later and the passion has stayed with him ever since. Bob owned a huge collection of bayonets from around the world, numbering many hundreds, but recently has streamlined his collection which is now one of the finest collections of British bayonets in private hands.

Bob's other interests include art history, photography and botany, specifically British wild flowers. He is married and has four grown up children. After a career in architecture, admin management, web design and management and, latterly, as a Learning Centre Manager and College Lecturer teaching IT, he is now retired and lives in Yeovil, Somerset with his wife, Carolyn, and Alice the cat.
