Pilgrimages to the WW1 battlefields
Dear Sir, — Each year the Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Battlefield tours organises pilgrimages to the battle areas of the First World War. The tours are in August and September.
This year we plan to visit the Somme Battlefields, The Ypres Salient, Arras, Vimy Ridge, and Loos Battlefield areas.
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 war graves from the First World War.
The 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 First World War battlefield areas of France and Flanders, and we support the Royal British Legion Poppy appeal.
These trips are open to anyone who might be interested, and we welcome all enquiries.
Tour dates for 2020: 6th to 10th August (fully booked); 10th to 14th September; 24th to 28th September.
Anyone who requires further information can contact us via the following: email firstname.lastname@example.org, search for “KOYLI Battlefield Tours” on Facebook, or telephone 01977 734614. — Yours faithfully,
32, Rhodes Street, Hightown, Castleford, West Yorkshire.
