Don't listen to Dave, he's no idea what he's talking about.
This year we will be doing the Battle of Arras and the Third Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele). We will be there on 30th September and 1st October.
Next year we will be going to the Sambre Canal/River Rhonelle where the Regiment suffered its last casualties of the Great War. That trip will be in November 2018.
