Pilgrimages to battlefields


Each year the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Battlefield Research Section, organise pilgrimages to the battle areas of the First World War. The tours are in August and September, covering France and Belgium. (Seats still available).

This year, we plan to visit all Somme Battlefields, the Ypres Salient, Arras, Vimmy Ridge and Loos Battlefield areas, if requested.

The trips specialise in visiting specific cemeteries or memorials.

The Battlefield Research Section was formed as a charitable hobby in 1990 by ex-servicemen who have many years of practical experience in conduction visits to the First World War battlefield areas of France and Flanders.

Anyone who requires further information please telephone (01977) 734614 or write to the address below including a medium SAE for postal replies.
