In addition, my sincerest thanks and appreciation for making the arrangements for me to pay my respects to his sacrifice with the wreath ceremony at the Menin Gate where his name is etched and his memory is commemorated. This one has had the lugs removed and a single screw post soldered onto the back instead for mounting to a plaque or board. The ability to stand on the exact spot, which, during the Battle of Mont St Quentin, he left the relative safety of the trench to run towards the enemy lines was an experience hard to imagine. Altogether a fantastic experience, very well organized, the Ariane was a great hotel and we would all have on hesitation in recommending the services of your company, and especially Bill, to anyone. Artillery Collar Badges – Lugs A slightly earlier pair of collars in that they have lugs instead of clutch pins. All the war graves are beautifully maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission & we spent much time just wandering around them. Beaver over Canada CSEF Shoulder Title – Scarce A scarce and seldom encountered shoulder title attributed to members of the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force. I like that there are no “hidden extras” – all meals, coffee stops, entrance fees are included, also wine with dinner. Mike, your obvious passion for this subject matter, sensitivity and companionship was all part and parcel of the tour and I believe my fellow travellers felt the same. Typically these are found with a leather scabbard but this one has an unusual purple velvet and brass example which has nice age and patination to it. The recreation of the story and actually seeing the buildings involved in the action allowed us all to visualise the campaign in which he was awarded the Military Medal. They also traced the place where Tom was killed & took us to it (no longer trenches, now peaceful farm land). On our first trip, Bill, our guide took us to a beautiful monument in Arras bearing the name of my Great Uncle, Tom Waite. The whole trip was excellent & we’re already booked for next year, this time with our sons-in-law. Originally there were four squadrons of “Colonials” living in the UK – British Asian, British African, British American and Australasian, each of which had a unique badge. Following our return from Ypres a couple of weeks ago just wanted to let you know what a most enjoyable time we all had. AUSTAIR UN Pocket Badge UNEF A nice pocket badge from the Australian Air commitment to the UNEF mission. British ARP Lapel Button – Sterling Marked An official issue lapel badge to the British Air Raid Precautions. Our travelling companions John and Wendy Hammerton from Falmouth joined us, as a close knit group, and shared the emotion of the occasion. It was during this horrible time that we truly appreciated the support from the team at Bartletts Battlefield Journeys. Our battlefields tour seems a distant memory now but I’ve just been going through our photos and smiling. We are very appreciative of the assistance given to us by Avril Williams and her son Mark at the Ocean Villas Tea House at Auchonvillers. Their combined experience, knowledge, compassion and clear thinking made this event seem less dreadful. To be taken almost to the very spot where he lost his life was very moving and Bill explained, in great detail, what the conditions would have been like to help us all understand a little more. Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal – Miniature An early period sterling Regular Army LSGC medal miniature. how do trenches form wwi trench rats trenching definition trench soldiers mens brown trench coat mariana trench images jacket mens long coat men what is trenches what was life like on the western front trench features red trench coat for men service trench trench wiki where is the mariana trench located brown trench coat men trench coat pics trenches on the western front trench mariana marianas trench logo brown trench coats brown jacket trench fight red trench coat men trench geology long brown trench coat trench coat photos mens white trench coat black leather trench coat men double breasted trench coat men
