    Well, after the success of Ypres where next & when.

    Suggestions so far are:

    The Somme
    Normandy

    Any more?
     
  2. Still Loads more to see in Ypres

    Yeah fcuker billed my credit card for 300 euros and not the 220 my bill was. :x

    I'm up for wherever the next one is, although not having been to Normandy that would be my choice.
     
  5. Presented us with a drinks bill that had room 34 penned out and room 12 added diet cokes etc needless to say we told him were to get off!

    on another note how much did we get in the tin?

    That would be my bill then, in room 35. Just over 83 euros in the tin.

    that would be fine with me just as well ;)

    though i agree that there's still a lot left to see in ypres
    i guess you need more than a cpl weeks to get a general idea and fine grasp about things

    I would be happy to go back & I would also be happy with The Somme, we just need to throw some ideas around to get a broad view.
     
  11. I can give tours of Arnhem/Oosterbeek that would knock your socks off,if your prepared to walk a lot? Oh and im also working towards my guild badge (guild of battlefield guides)

    Being out of work now, ive the time :)
     
  12. Never been to Normndy, so that is my favourite, but I am up for anywhere else too. The Somme would be good as a follow up to Ypres.

    Phil & Steve from my group would be up for the Somme.
