World War 1
With the centenary of the Great War now in its final year - remembrance of the millions of young men who fell on the killing fields of the Western Front in France and Belgium is at its peak. We invite you to join us over this remaining centenary period as we help you retrace your ancestors footsteps back to France and Belgium in WW1.

World War 2
21 years later - with the dust scarcely settling from the massive rebuilding program nearly finished  from the apocalyptic destruction of lives and property from WW1 - Nazi German propelled the world into another cataclysmic conflict. World War 2 had begun. In 2019 and 2020 we will commemorate respectively many 75th and 80th WW2 Anniversary events. Join us for what will be another set of very historic WW2 anniversary events. And - enjoy our great WW2 slideshow D-DAY & MORE..

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance Why we are REALLY different: We are NOT a travel or a coach company operating 'budget priced volume tours' to battlefield sites with driver guides only.

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance Our tours are structured for all: individuals, small groups, family groups and larger groups. Both our Battlefield and Remembrance tours 'walk the ground' where your ancestors fought, often pinpointing the area where they fell and visiting their graves or memorial inscriptions (Tyne Cot, Menin Gate, Thiepval etc). Our expert battlefield historian guides can also do extensive family history research for your ancestors with a variety of *top level resources (*some actually closed to the public) such as the National Archives, Regimental HQ's, Army/Air Force records etc.
The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance We also have pretty impressive connections (see our Advisory Board) and a real depth and range of experience.
