Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can someone in the know please advise on the best course of action for a very short battlefield tour:

    Ferry lands at midday on the friday and leaving late Monday. What would be the best things to see in such a short time and which can be bypassed?

    Cheers in advance

    Get a decent tour book and pick the best locations for yourself. I made the massive error of trying to fit in everything in a weekend. 15 years later I am stlil going to Ypres and the Somme and finding I havent even scratched the surface.

    You havent said where you are going.

    As stated a good tour guide book is the way ahead say Holts or Before Endeavours Fade by Rose Coombes MBE which covers both areas.
  3. Very fair point. Posted in a rush. Getting ferry over. Planning on the Somme, Menin Gate etc but plans are a bit up in the air

    Not been for about 15 years or so no need a refresher
