: Sir do you have a provisional date for this trip as we wish to put it into our branch diary dates for next year regards Dave

The final deaths of the Great War occurred between the 4th and 10th of November 1918 at two actions closely located. These dates cause problems with Remembrance dates back here in England, with Remembrance Sunday actually being Armistice Day - 11th November,
The dates in France are going to take account of this. We will travel over on 4th November and return on 6th November, having commemorated the crossing of the Sambre-Oise Canal (2nd Battalion) and the Rhonelle River (9th Battalion). The Commemoration Service for our last casualty will be on 6th November.
