I have now sorted things for the next Arrse WW1 Battlefield Tour.
The tour will, again, be lead by Flyingmonkey and he will give a detailed itinerary shortly.
We will again be based at Snowden House In Lougueval, for those who have not been before an ideal location & venue for a group such as ours.
Snowden House - www.snowdenhouse.co.uk - Home
The outline itinerary is:
Saturday: a walk around the Bullecourt battlefields, plus Loos and Givenchy , then on Saturday evening FM will give a talk on the La Boisselle tunnels project.
Sunday: Morning a visit to Peronne & view the the life size model of the Livens Large Gallery Flame Projector.
Breathing Fire. Le dragon de la Somme - Future Exhibitions - Exhibitions - Official site of Historial
Afternoon, a walk in the La Boisselle area, looking at the current tunnel dig.
BBC News - WWI underground: Unearthing the hidden tunnel war

Cost is £85 for the 3 nights accommodation & a rather dashing short sleeved rugby jersey. Local cost will be collected in Euros at the house (this normally works out at about 50/60)
For those wishing to attend, PM me & I'll give you payment details, which can either be by cheque or BACS.
I'll also need you shirt size;
They are:
S 32/34
M 36/38
L 40/42
XL 44/46
XXL 48

Names will be added to those attending when I have reveived payment:

Oldbaldy
Mrs Baldy
Flyingmonkey

Definitely interested but transport would be my issue, would be able to go if a lift available from Gatwick and back (or somewhere I can get to Gatwick and back from!)

I put it on the other thread too, but I can make this one. Just waiting to hear if I can get a lift with TigerMonkey. I'll send the cash over this evening OB.

It will be good to catch up with everyone again, especially having missed the last one.

OB,

Payment sent. I have the bank transfer details from last time.

For the rugger top I think I need an L.

Looking forward to seeing all the usual suspects and new comers.
