John Cameron-Webb will be running another weekend guided battlefield tour in and around Ypres on 20th -21st April.

img15illp051Driving down to Belgium in private vehicles early Saturday morning, (car pooling can be arranged) the weekend will include visits to important battlegrounds, monuments, cemeteries and take part in the impressive Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate.

The costs for this trip are kept to a minimum by using private cars and using good but modest hotel accommodation which John can recommend. The group will have an evening meal together Saturday evening to reflect on the days impressions and generally enjoy a weekend away.

Anyone interested to take part, please contact John by e-mail ymaj@online.nl before 6th April.
