Surreys Battlefield

Posted by Tont T for Alasdair Goulden on Thu, Sep 07 2017 at 11:58 AM CDT:


on from my distribution yesterday of the flyers for the Surreys Battlefield
Tour I have ben asked to give you this additional information from Col Tony
Ward. Note the very generous offer of a
100GBP subsidy.

The Friends of Surrey Infantry Museum have arranged a final WW1 Battlefield
Tour 14th -17th May 2018. ( you already have the flyer).
We will be covering actions not visited on our 2014 and 2016 tours and the main
Battles of 1917 and 1918. We are again using Anglia Tours with Major Tim
Saunders MBE ( Awarded for his contribution to Military History) http://www.gbg-international.com/guide_06.htm ,
he will be supported by Ian Chatfield whose knowledge of the WW1 actions of The
Queen’s Royal ( West Surrey) and East Surrey Regiment cannot be surpassed. On
16th May we will hold the Albuhera Silent toast followed by a Dinner
( all included). I am sure you will agree to hold the ceremony amongst
the Battlefields in which so many of our predecessors died will be very
poignant. The cost is between £507 - £427 each. The more that come so
price drops. We hope 35 will come so the price is likely to be £447
each. For those wanting a single Room to themselves, there is a supplement
of £100. These costs are a slight increase in our previous tours but entirely
due to the fall in the value of Stirling. Now for the Good news: There will be
a subsidy to anyone coming on the tour who has worn the PWRR Cap badge
(including spouses) or any of the predecessor Regiments making the likely
price £347 for a four day tour.Attached is a draft itinerary and a
booking form. This should be sent to Dee Hutchison, Friends of Surrey
Infantry Museum, Surrey History Centre, 130 Goldsworth Rd, Woking, Surrey GU21
6ND by 24th November together with a deposit cheque
of £60 made payable to Anglia Tours.

Do consider going
