If you are thinking about a full day tour of the Somme during July and August then we have a SPECIAL OFFER of just £90 per person. We will pick you up from, and return you to, the location of your choice in Lille, Arras or Albert! Minimum party size of 4 persons applies to this offer. Contact us for full details.
As a former History and sometime English teacher, one of the highlights of our recent tour was saying the words of “Dulce et Decorum est” over the grave of Wilfred Owen, one of my all-time heroes, at the cemetery in Ors. Very moving!
We are pleased to support the forthcoming conferences to be held in Leeds starting in 2014. Go to our Links page for the link to their website.
Just returned from a very successful 5 day tour with Messrs John Rubin and Colin Beattie from NW England. We covered the retreat from and advance to Mons on day 1, the Somme on day 2, Arras and Vimy (meeting up with Col and his Canadian party very briefly!) on day 3, Ypres and the Salient on day 4, and a nice relaxing morning in “Pop” before returning via Waterloo to Charleroi. They are returning with Entente Cordiale Battlefield Tours to visit Verdun and the remarkable medieval walled city of Le Quesnoy in September, and more concentrated areas next year!
Look out for another editorial, pictures and advert in an up-coming edition of this great magazine!
Next week (w/c 7/4/13) both of us will be guiding separate tours at the same time. I’ll be with a party of gentlemen from NW England from 7th to 12th, whilst Col is with a couple from Canada just for a day on the 10th visiting the main Canadian sites! We hope to muster at Vimy Ridge for lunch!
At last we have some tour pictures to share with you on our Gallery page! There are more to come. A big thanks to our new website and Facebook page editor – you know who you are!
Have a look at our new page and follow one brave lad’s story!
