Hi everyone. My name is Tom, although I usually go by the pseudonym of ErrantX (or Errant) on the internet. I am an active Wikipedia contributor and sysop. My focus is on the Second World War, in particular the topic of deception. My key contributions have been two featured articles, and numerous good articles in that topic area.

In the real world I am an active member of Wikimedia UK, part of the committee organising this years UK conference. In addition I am a freelance software engineer, which includes being a contractor for the UK chapter.

You can get me personally on tom@errant.me.uk
