Battlefields Visit - June 2011

CNHS Party - Ypres 2011

WW1 Battlefields Trips

During both 2011 and 2013 the Colmworth & Neighbours History Society (well, Jan Smith really) has organised trips to the World War One battlefields - in 2011 to Ypres and the battlefields of Flanders and in 2013 to Arras and the battlefields of the Somme.

In both cases we have been extremely fortunate to have had Roger Willson as our guide.
