We are putting together a return trip to Verdun for the weekend 16-18 March 2012.
The accommodation we used last time is no longer available but we think we've identified somewhere else.
Flying Monkey is available that weekend to lead the group again.
This is just a warning order & I'm not looking for firm commitments.
I'll post the accommodation once we have a firm booking.

Again guys typically I will be in warmer climes so I won't be on this one, absolutely gutted, OB I will have a shirt though so let me know nearer the time....

Keep Bohs in check as the poor lad needs a hand to hold. But seriously guys have a good one Verdun is the best place for the visual effect and leave Bohs locked up at Fort Vaux ;)

Arters, travel is under own arrangements, usually people are able to hook up with others & fill cars. I know of no others in your area but we did have some travel down from Scotland for the Loos tour.
No proble bringing non arrsers, we've had various friends & relatives with an interest in what we are doing come along.

with luggage it could be only one.......looking forward, having done Tours of KZ's myself.

Would love to, but no time. Plus now living in Switzerland, so will be angling for a tour to the Alsace/Lorraine battlefields for the future ;)

Vosges?
