Historical Research

Our team can also help you to plan this tailor made visit. If you would like to follow in the footsteps of a family member who fought in the Great War or a specific regiment or battalion, then this is the type of tour you need. By giving us the information about a soldier who fought there, for example his full name, his army number, the battalion he fought with - whatever you can find - we will do the research and take you to all the places that relate to this person. We have access to online resource and we also have our own documentation, photos, original trench maps and many books...
