This November sees the centenary of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Every family in Britain was affected in one way or another by the four years of slaughter that tore Europe apart between the years 1914-18.
To mark the 100 years since the guns fell silent, leading historical research group Battlefield Memorial Tours will take a coach party not just to key sites on the former Western Front, but also to Ypres, Belgium, where a major service to mark the signing of the 1918 armistice will take place at the world-famous Menin Gate.
The coach party will also visit the battlefield of Waterloo, where allied forces under the Duke of Wellington defeated French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte’s armies in June, 1815.
The trip will run from Saturday, November 10 to Tuesday, November 13.
