From the detailed itinerary and expert guidance to the quaility of the accomodation and food, everything was wonderful. I will dissamble the grenade and sent it stripped, but there is a good chance that customs may seize it and destroy it. I was very impressed with the level of detail he brought to the tour, which made it all the more enjoyable on top of the sites we visited. I am writing to thank you and Mike for delivering a fabulous tour for the most important men in my life – Alan and Jack! I was not sure what the Tour was going to provide but I can only say I was absolutely shocked about the number of cemeteries some so near to each other, some in remote areas, but all so beautifully maintained. The information that you gave us each day including excellent maps was so informative and interesting. For all that we saw and did, a small side trip and a walk on a farmers track to the “pimple”, brought some of the strongest emotions for both Jim and I.

It is now guaranteed that they will never forget the sacrifices of their great uncle and his family and their comrades. The stories of the battles and daily life brought it poignantly to life and our gratitude to them cannot be overstated.

CFA Officer Flaming Bomb Collars – Bronze Finish Nice matching pair of bronze service dress officer collars to the artillery. Such an emotional time, so poignant to see the graveyards, to hear the stories, to go to Talbot House to listen to your experiences and your enormous knowledge of the area and all that had happened there. The attention to detail, the information, the gentle way of explaining things to us – all of it just sensational. Hearing what was happening to each and seeing the places they fought and fell for our way of life was, at times, overwhelming.
