Ms Jan Gore


I am a lecturer in French and am part of the Kingston Language Scheme. I have been teaching French at Kingston  since January 2013. I have a First Class Honours degree in French from the University of Exeter and an MA in French, also from the University of Exeter.

I have written two books: Send More Shrouds:  the V1 attack on the Guards' Chapel 1944 and The Terror Raids of 1942: the Baedeker Blitz. Both are published by Pen & Sword. My third book, The Doodlebug Summer, is due to be published in spring 2024.
