Branch Trips

Our branch trips are organised and led by our branch members, most often by Bob Brunsdon who is a member of the Guild of Battlefield Guides. Our trips vary from day trips to museums to theatre trips to an annual trip to the Western Front. Trips are open to branch members, their family, friends and indeed anyone who is interested in the subject.

This year's trip will be led by Dave Gargett. It will be based in Ypres Salient and is entitled 'Mines, Medals and Muddles' and will be taking place from 12th - 15th September with accommodation being at the Flanders Lodge Hotel in Ypres.
