Battlefield tours of Somme and Loos
Dear Sir, — Every August and September, the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Battlefield Tours organises pilgrimages to WWI battle areas.
This year, we plan to visit the Somme and Loos battlefields, The Ypres Salient, Arras and Vimy Ridge.
The trips specialise in visiting specific cemeteries or memorials on the above mentioned battlefields as and when they are requested, and an experienced battlefield guide will accompany each trip, to commentate on the various battles and the many historic events that occurred in the areas that we visit.
We can also assist people in the tracing of WWI war graves.
The King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Battlefield pilgrimages was formed as a charitable hobby in 1990 by ex-servicemen who have many years of practical experience in conducting visits to the WWI battlefield areas of France and Flanders, and we support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
These trips are open to everyone and we welcome all enquiries. We are a not for profit organisation. For further information people can call me or write to me at the address below. We ask for a medium sized SAE for all postal replies. — Yours faithfully,
32, Rhodes Street,
