: : Are we going to France next year....PASSCHENDALE...if so will it be late July need to plan next years Holidays
: Yes, it will be Passchendaele in July but it needs some thought as a battlefield tour is not straight-forward as we had five Battalions in different areas. We will also go to Tyne Cot Cemetery and possible the Menin Gate for the 8 pm Last Post Ceremony. Bob Bumstead please be aware. I need to do a recce, probably in October, to finalise the plan.
1918 will be in November when the Regiment's last offensive occurred and when the last man of the Regiment (9th Battalion) was killed in action. It will be on the 6th November and all will be back in time for Remembrance Sunday for your Branch parades.
